The Post-Urban Cityscapes of Alex Lukas

Alex Lukas’ (NAP #92) works on paper are like historical mementos of an event that has not yet occurred. But the artist is careful not to attach a didactic or moralistic message to his work, disliking the term ‘post-Apocalyptic’ for its negative connotations. He says, “The whole idea of post-apocalyptic fiction in our common cultural dialogue focuses on a singular event or turning point, and I’m more interested in a time after that. It’s not so much a depiction of a particular event that changed things, but an ambiguous time [after that].
