Lucas Simões: Luscofusco
June 3, 2023 - August 19, 2023
1612 W Chicago Ave
Chicago, IL 60622

A series of sculptures join a site-specific installation in the São Paulo–based artist’s exploration of luscofusco, the Portuguese word for twilight. For Simões, a trained architect, there’s more to “Luscofusco” than capturing the dreamy hues of golden hour; he delightfully subverts expectations with meditations on the dawn of Greco-Roman sculpture, Modernist architecture, and a composite of past and present in each work. His third exhibition with Patron Gallery is effectively a study in balance, in which precarious-seeming sculptures exude balance while rigid steel and concrete lose their rigidity, instead evoking fluidity and grace.
