We are thrilled to be offering you a unique opportunity to acquire internationally acclaimed artist Luciana Abait’s latest artworks.

A highly sought after Los Angeles based artist; Abait has produced ambitious, captivating, evocative artworks for the last two decades, she has been exhibited and collected worldwide. In her new work, the artist addresses pressing issues with masterful execution, making her monumental “Iceberg Series” a sublime collection that evokes a feeling of awe.

"My work intends to create the sensation in viewers of witnessing a new visual nature through the creation of photo-based manipulated landscapes, installations and photo-sculptures. The main components of “Icebergs” series are icebergs and construction structures and equipment like scaffolds and cranes. These are presented establishing new relationships with one another in a surreal manner. These connections bring about issues of adaptation, assimilation, isolation and displacement. Also, they make a reflection on the aggressive intrusion of men into nature even in the most remote places on earth, thus creating awareness of environmental issues.
“Icebergs” is photo-based, printed on thick watercolor paper. I work over this surface with pencils and pastels erasing almost completely the photograph underneath. This action also references to the disappearance of icebergs due to global warming caused by man-made actions, just like my drawing. The direct expressions of pencils on paper allow me to create more gestural and expressive, emotionally charged images. .
