LUCCIA LIGNAN CO.UK



LUCCIA LIGNAN 
(b.1980 Córdoba, Spain) 
Painter and Sculptress 
Lives and works in London, United Kingdom

She has painted portraits from an early age, and an explosion of colour is found in her first attempts with paintbrushes at the age of nine. She paints the portrait of her maternal grandmother "Small artwork on canvas", which she still maintains, (Private Collection). Her great-grandfather, a French musician, whose family was mostly composed of theater actors, was an essential influence for Luccia in that universe of her artistic creation. Her elegant and reliable work, perhaps showing the legacy of her English great-great-grandmother. She goes to a painter's studio to receive private painting's class and finishes her education at The Faculty of Fine Arts Santa Isabel de Hungria at Seville University.
Her personal imprint and the beauty of her brush stroke have culminated in designs that merge the political, avant-garde, and collector communities. She likes her characters look, observe, rather than being observed. Her portraits are like the Beautiful Florence, elegant and somewhat reserved, they are pure simplicity, when you gaze at them, the most element emotions get back to you.
Luccia Lignan not only offers a creative panoramic aspect in painting, her artistic activity includes the cultivation of sculpture as well. Her first sculpture works show us an admirable irresistible personality, and her colourist talent in her polychromatic works, woodcarvings or bronzes.
Her painting and sculpture are inseparable. The feminine polychromatic woodcarvings and bronzes, run in paralell and are tied up to her pictorial creations.
Has a conceptual background in a group exhibition at Córdoba County Council in 1994 and her second at Alfaro Gallery Seville in 1996.
Next was a group exhibition "Young Painting", Tarragona City Council 1997. The figurative painting "Future in Balance", is shown at Maestro Mateo Prize - Caja Sur 1998 - Honorable Mention. She has coloured silhouettes and ironic homages to Boccioni at Córdoba County Council in 1998 (Baroque Patio). Travels to Italy, London, and rest of Europe. Later, individual and group exhibitions at Seville Architects College in 1999 (Echoes of Gutierrez Solana's work), Palais del Congre's, Aix-en-Provence (France), International Show des Seigneurs de L'Art 99.

NY ARTS MAGAZINE "LOLLIPOP LOLITAS" - LUCCIA LIGNAN

LOLLIPOP LOLITAS
Luccia Lignan
The Nude is an art, and expresive form, a cry of freedom, a call to the beauty.-The Nudes of Luccia Lignan talk to us about sensuality.-Her women are sensitive and relaxed.-They are grateful to be alive, and they demonstrate this gratitude in their body language.-Despite being very conscious of their charms—their voluptuous and sensual bodies and their gazes directed unabashedly at the viewer—they nonetheless evince an air of innocence.-They demonstrate the ideal "Eternal Woman with Classical Echoes, but under the Modern vision of 21st century Eroticism".
Whether they appear as individual figures or in more complex compositions, Lignan's nudes participate in theatrical scenes. Structuring the shapes abundant in her compositions with rich color modeling before undertaking any work, she thinks instinctively for days and weeks, establishing personal rules for how to proceed. Her sense of order, balance, and audacity ensure proper orchestration of the compositional elements, and sweeten her canvases with flowing colors of great expressivity. Her paintings transmit strength and eroticism. Her splendid abstractions depict a universe governed by textures and harmonic colors, stimulating in the viewer with a fountain of pure pleasure.

VENUS IN MANHATTAN by Francisco Robles . Writer and Journalist .



VENUS IN MANHATTAH
D. Francisco Robles . Writer and Journalist

While Velazquez shows us his Muse, so shy that she turns her back on us and looks in the Crystalline Angel of the looking glass, our Venus in Manhattan, faces up to the spectadors' gaze against a backdrop of edges.
Sharp and vertical lines, coldness of the glass which reflects impossible suns on the feminine curves.
Contrasts between skin and painting .
Building that scrape the sky. Sculptural volumes that take us to the singular Hell of desire.
Her feline gaze, excites, disturbs and awakens instincts that are never completely dormant.
Behind stood a forest of concrete buildings where a hundred thousand eyes looking at The Madonna's voluptuous form, all stared like voyeurs reflecting off into infinity .
For an instant we are the frame of the Velazqueño looking glass. We have the great fortune to admire a wonder of beauty. Hallelujah!
Manhattan is a huge cocktail where there is room for everything from absurdity to reason.
Everything is within that Big Apple where we constantly bite from the fruit of knowledge.
Nude except for shoes, Venus is ready to read the street grid.
What remains is nude. What remains is body. Purity of forms. Hinted Baroque .
Iron substantiality and crystal desire coexist behind the windows of Manhattan .

Good Morning! Manhattan . 2009 . Luccia Lignan
