The Beaches Museum & History Park is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibit “Vibrancy & Illumination” by artist Jeffrey Luque.
Luque’s highly detailed large-scale floral paintings are inspired by his time in the desert where the sparse landscape emphasized the singular beauty of the plants. Upon returning to his hometown of Jacksonville Beach, Florida, Luque began his “Girl with Flowers” series which pushed his technical and creative skills to a new level. Using pointillism to highlight and add depth to the larger than life subjects of his paintings, Luque transforms oil paint and canvas into snapshots of natural beauty.
Jeffrey Luque grew up in Neptune Beach and Jacksonville Beach. Although always inspired by nature, his painting career didn’t begin until the age of 23 when he experimented with oil paints on large canvases. He is entirely self-taught. This event is free to Museum members with a suggested $5 donation from non-members. The exhibit will be on display October 11 – February 17. For more information please call 904-241-5657.
