A prolific Lowcountry artist whose work has been featured on the covers of several bestselling books, Sol Luckman has a fascination with what he calls “surfacing.”

This term, as it plays out in Luckman’s expressionistic and experimental paintings, can refer to many things of a universally human nature: rebirth, leaving the nest, taking a risk, rising above.

But to paraphrase renowned philosopher Teilhard de Chardin, we are not merely humans on a spiritual journey; we are equally spiritual creatures engaged in a human experience.

With this notion in mind, surfacing in much of Luckman’s work takes on a more transcendent aspect having to do with becoming conscious, awakening, receiving enlightenment, and co-creating reality with something greater than our individual selves.

Surfacing can also be taken at face value. In Luckman’s paintings creatures and objects fly, suns and moons rise, waves swell. Here a mysterious figure surfaces from underwater; there another boldly rides the surf.

Last but not least, surfacing refers to the literal surfaces of Luckman’s intricately patterned and highly textured paintings. Whether working with brush and ink, painting knife and acrylic or another technique, Luckman’s primary goal is to render a lively surface that invites a deeper look at what else of intrigue might be surfacing.
