Andrew Luk is a multimedia artist whose practice illustrates the ever-changing representation and perception of violence. Inspired by post-structuralism and Paul Virilio's practice, Luk investigates how civilisation regards itself in relation to nature. He examines civilisation while studying the natural forces of entropy, anti-entropy, and preservation. Luk exemplifies these ideas through the Horizon Scan series, in which he uses homemade napalm—an incendiary agent that has been banned by the United Nations for wartime use—to torch and clear materials such as canvas, wood, and copper. The burned remains are then carefully collaged together, submerged in resin, and painstakingly polished for days. The final result shows the work lit from within, and illuminates an unfamiliar landscape that exists outside of the wall it rests upon. The layers seem to shift and slide depending on the passing of time and light. The way that the mutable patterns reveal their nuances and subtleties correlates with Luk's perception of time.
