NEW YORK, N.Y. — Russian-born painter Lana Lucas will bring her contemporary surrealistic watercolor paintings to the InterArt Gallery in New York City in an exhibition that is sure to stir deep emotions and heighten visual senses. Lana Lucas has created a name for herself with paintings that feature rich, vibrant colors contrasted with very dark subjects that invite the viewer into a beautiful, yet strangely dangerous world. Her work is shown internationally and her images have been praised by art critic Bear Miller as being “haunting and fascinating.”

For the past decade, Lana Lucas has been experimenting with different mediums as diverse as hand-welded stainless steel sculptural works and hand-painted furniture. Lucas – who finds inspiration in the art of German surrealist Hans Bellmer and in the world of dangerous carnivorous plants – has turned into painting more recently.

Lucas has recently exhibited at ArtExpo New York, the historic National Arts Club New York and was featured in the Fine Art Magazine’s – The Soul Giants 2006 End of Fall Art Showcase.

The exhibition at InterArt will feature Lucas’ Hunt I and Hunt II series and several of her portraits.

InterArt Gallery works with top European surrealist artists. The painters are chosen based on their dedicated surrealist vision and high level of technical skills.
