Acrylic on canvas, 2019. The mermaid song attracts navigators, surfers and hackers towards the rocks of the Greek Islands. Home of Gods, reason for dreams and video games. Sonic the Hedgehog by Sega and King Odysseus of Ithaca. A trip to the end of the game, and them back, to the sweetest moment, when you surrender to the mermaid that promises death with pleasure. All your phallus, on your back, are the only thing remaining from your divinity. They are both power and burden.
Joana Lucas is a Portuguese visual artist living in Berlin. She creates photorealistic paintings that depict images of fractured daily life in urban environments. Her paintings show the fascination and power of the uncanny and strange through images that play with beauty, social media and classical aesthetics as a means to touch the viewer. She comprehends her surroundings through images and uses them as a code to interpret and communicate information. The scope of her methodology revolves around the relationship between photography and painting, as a way to frame an exact moment in life and trace the human passage. She graduated in Fine Arts from the Faculdade de Belas Artes de Lisboa, University of Lisbon, in 2003. In the same year she received a scholarship to attend the Statens kunstakademi in Oslo. In 2004, she studied advanced photography at the Portuguese Association of Photographic Art in Lisbon. In 2005 she received a scholarship for an internship at Kreuzberger Musikalische Aktion, Berlin. Since then she lives and works in Berlin. Her work has been shown regularly and in several international exhibitions since 2001.
