In his recent work Luke Elwes conjures up a particular space where land and water meet, where the shifting light radiates through a tree line or across coastal marshland and where the tides move back and forth through a delicate maze of creeks and channels. They reveal chance encounters with a myriad of visual stimuli: passing birds, rolling mist, scattered flora, wind blown leaves or drifting shapes, floating on, reflected in, the passing streams.

They are a fragile record of process and time, the uncertain result of a particular moment of elemental engagement, made without correction in one sitting. The location varies - sometimes close to home, sometimes in remote locations - and provides just a beginning, a way of collecting particles of colour and light, and a way of observing the play of prevailing conditions on a surface which, once it is scattered with incidental markings and stained with coloured pigment and organic matter, is then allowed to become saturated by the surrounding waters. And each time the resulting image belongs as much to the elements as to the artist who began it.

Luke Elwes was born in 1961 and now lives in London. He studied at Bristol University, Camberwell School of Art, and London University. In 1987, after meeting Bruce Chatwin, he went to the central Australian desert to explore its landscape and indigenous artforms, and since then has travelled extensively, discovering and revisiting remote locations in India, Asia Minor and North Africa. Since 2000 he has worked for long periods on the East Anglian coast, and was recently awarded residency grants at the Vermont Studio Center (2013) and the Josef Albers Foundation (2015) in the USA.

Since 1990 he has had 20 solo exhibitions in London, Paris and New York, as well as group shows in Europe, including Il Sud del Mondo (Palermo/Milan), Jeune Peinture (Grand Palais Paris), Gli amici pittori di Londra and Genius Loci (Bergamo Italy).

Recent shows include: Clifford Chance, London 2015; Adam Gallery, London 2014, 2012 2011; Minories, Colchester 2014; Young Museum, Salisbury 2013; North House Gallery, Essex 2012; Estorick Collection, London 2010; Browse & Darby, London 2010; Galerie Marceau Bastille, Paris 2009; Kettles Yard, Cambridge 2008; Galleria Ceribelli, Bergamo & Milan 2008; Bury Art Gallery, Manchester 2007. Luke Elwes has also written on art for Modern Painters, Royal Academy Magazine, Abstract Critical and other print & online publications. In 2011 he was invited to give an �Artist�s Eye� talk at the National Gallery.
