Emil Lukas is a mixed media artist  from Stockertown Pennsylvania who is most commonly known for his beautiful, delicate thread paintings. Thread isn’t just used in fabric with this evolutionary artist who combines the thread and larvae to create this powerful array of artistic movement. I love his work because it is an example of how the decorative fine arts take on a scientific approach. “The work is about understanding what’s already in your shop, what’s right next to you, and experimenting with its nature.” says Lukas. -elledecor

Larvae process of painting:

 The artist releases larvae into a sealed, prepared, environment where moisture, light, ink and paint color are controlled. As the larvae travel across the surface, they interact with the paint and ink, creating random and sinewy lines. Lukas establishes the context; however, it is the larvae’s movement that produces the marks – the traces of nature, the abstract remains of passage. via Sperone Westwater.
