Ones to Watch: Luke Wagner

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

In Luke Wagner’s most recent series of work, nearly three decades of painting experience cumulate in a deft collection of landscapes inspired by the artist’s visit to Tasman Island. Now entering the mid-phase of his career – having formerly been made finalist in The Hadley’s Prize, The Glover Prize, and a commendation in the Tattersalls Prize – Luke has lately begun to challenge his familiar imagery and push into new visual territory and technique. In this most recent work, the opaque skies and spectral landscapes of Tasmania are exquisitely rendered in a series of oil works that are as haunting as they are beautiful.
