Michael Lucero (1953; USA)
Lot # 118 - Michael Lucero (1953; USA)
Tree Beetle
1986
Glazed earthenware; ht. 17.25, wd. 7.75, dp. 5 in.
Artist signature and date on base.

Among the many bodies of work created by Lucero in the 1980's, his most subtle were his "bug and fish" series from the mid 1980's. Taking the form of an actual creature and surfacing it with his amazing matte glazed imagery and then surrounding the edge of the creature with black, these works, mainly exhibited at the Everson Museum in Syracuse New York have a classicism that overwhelmed the viewer. This piece is a prime example of that body of work that would never be repeated as the years went on.
