Artist Statement

Inspired by the Vancouver Biennale 2014 – 2016 exhibition themed Open Borders/Crossroads Vancouver, I drew engagement and discussion by presenting three large-scale interventions. Working with the mediums of photography and projection, I translated geometric forms into large scale constructions that explored my interests in the perception of space, objects and environment.”

Jonathan Luckhurst currently lives and works in Edmonton, Canada. He has experimented widely with his photographic work – incorporating paper negatives, photocopies, charcoal and projection into his highly layered process. More recently, he has begun to explore sculpture and the ways in which he can bring elements of botany, sustainability and education into fully immersive works.

In 2015 Luckhurst participated in the Vancouver Biennale International Residency Program where he created a large scale three-panel photographic intervention in a public space that explored the intersection of human made structures and the natural environment.
