Lucas Blok is a Monterey-based artist who has a long-standing fascination with color. His paintings are mesmerizing experiments in visual perception as he works with vibrant and intensely saturated hues that become a unique participatory experience for each individual viewer. His neon blues, greens, hot pinks and brilliant yellows pulse with rhythm and create an optical buzz as he paints dominant shapes and highly precise geometric patterns across his large canvases.
Blok was recently awarded the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant for 2011-2012, which recognizes and generously supports his artistic merit as a professional artist over a significant period of time.
