Lukifer Aurelius - 'Contingent' - oil on aluminium panel - 120 x 120cm (47.2”x47.2”)
Lukifer Aurelius is a New Zealand-born, Brisbane-based painter. In 2011, Aurelius moved to Brisbane to study classical drawing and painting techniques in a traditional atelier environment. Working mainly with oils, Aurelius creates surreal, multi-figure compositions that serve as personal meditations on the plurality of individuality, as well as on the individual relationship to the unknown and the unknowable that underpins our experience of the world. With a primarily intuitive process of ideation, Aurelius embraces the ambiguous character of each visual element and its place within a scene, aiming to allow for dynamic layers of tension and harmony to arise.
