Born in Marseille in 1974, Jerome Lucani challenges the liminality of photography, creating artworks that defy the temporality of the singular image. Using glaze, lacquer, resin, and mosaic techniques, Lucani reveals the narrative hidden underneath the photographic moment.

Lucani's most well-known series, ICONS, is made from compositions of hundred of images relating to his subjects, revealing an entire narrative within one single art work. By capturing the portrait of his subjects with layers of related and biographical images, Lucani is able to explore both the past and the present in each work, representing the soul of his subjects by exploring the subjective entirety of their lives.  This timeless vision has led him to portray such iconic figures as Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn, Queen Elisabeth, Kate Moss, Abraham Lincoln, Johnny Cash, Albert Einstein, and many others.

In his latest body of work artist explores how art is present in nature and, subsequently, can be a form of inspiration to us all. Lucani has a penchant for revealing the narrative hidden underneath the artistic moment, and has not held back on his subliminal messages in his new pieces. The artist is aware of the destruction of biodiversity, and has chosen to use beauty as a means to transcend language, and communicate how contemporary society takes advantage of the beauty in nature around us. The entire exhibition has been particularly influenced by coral reef life, and each piece will be named after the living thing that it is envisioned on.

The artist hopes that the audience will be able to value the potential to cherish this source of natural inspiration. Lucani argues that we have been desensitized to the natural elements around us and hopes that, through his vision, the audience will be inspired by the beauty that is present in nature.
