Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, Lucas Guilbert grew up bathed by an infusion of cultures. He finds the inception of his artistic practice in this diverse upbringing.
After many years of travel, Lucas migrated to Australia in 2007. Moved by his new environment and the unique outlook on the world this particular standpoint offers, his attention focuses on the natural forms and ecological paradigms that transcend locality and culture. Emerging from this process, Lucas’ truly idiosyncratic wood carving practice reaches us, matured and ever evolving.
