About Luke Shemroske
A new artist at Project Onward, Luke Shemroske, describes art making as an adventure. We all know that some adventures turn out better than others, and each adventure yields its own successes, failures, accomplishments, defeats, joys, sorrows, struggles, complexities of emotions, ideas, thoughts, and inspirations, all of which are apparent in Luke’s work. ​In one simple yet extremely complex word, Luke’s artwork is truly poetic. Luke’s work evokes ideas of what Federico García Lorca called “duende,” or a dance with death. It is an awareness of death, referencing the concept of “Deep Song,” danger and darkness. Unlike the typical artistic muse or angel, the “duende” resides within an artist, beckons and possesses the artist, and drives the artist to create something.
