Doris Lusk 1916 -1990
‘City with old Fortification’
Works of this significance by Doris Lusk seldom come to the market.
Art Historian Lisa Beaven wrote in the catalogue accompanying Doris Lusk’s 1996 exhibition Landmarks: The Landscape Paintings of Doris Lusk
“An analysis of her art throughout her career reveals a deep fascination with particular motifs, centring around industrial imagery in landscape settings. For more than five decades, Lusk consistently pursued this preoccupation, using different techniques and employing different media. From being the result of random excursions, Lusk's paintings were directed explorations, not just of the relationship between the structures and the land around them, but also of the buildings themselves, and aspects of the juxtapositions of interior and exterior, exposure and concealment, surface and depth. The manifold layers of meaning embedded in the buildings and their role in projecting a certain mood, suggest her painting may profit from being read as expressions of moods, metaphors and symbols.”
