Luca is a mixed media artist and lifelong nomad; raised in Missouri, educated in BC, and a newcomer to the east coast. His practice combines realism with upcycled items to create surreal, three-dimensional, and texturally engaging works, often focused on birds. 

Nesting

Nesting is an unfinished, participatory sculpture, meant to illustrate how home is borne and shaped by families, communities, and cultures. A family of robins will hover over a nest woven from wire and scrap fabric, sheltering their eggs. Participants are invited to help finish the nest by adding scrap fabric.
