Charlie Lucas

The World Through My Eyes

April 01, 2008 - October 01, 2009

This exhibition brings together twelve of Charlie Lucas’s (Pink Lily, AL) large-scale sculptures in the Museum’s outdoor Sculpture Pit. Assembled from machine parts and other cast off materials, Lucas’s sculptures are remarkable for how ingeniously he fits an assortment of unwieldy parts into a cohesive whole. Each of Lucas’s works, whether taking animal, human or even alien form, comprises a series of symbolic or literal references to his own family history or to more universal social conditions. The works in the sculpture pit are both free standing and wall bound sculptures.
