  • Overview

    Lucas Underwood’s portraits are collages of beautifully layered maps and newspaper clippings, built into depictions of figure and flower, bush and apparel. The men situated in the work are composed of land, water, road, dots and towns on paper – representations of the cultures and location that form the men they are becoming. The almost-obsessive lines over maps create contours and shadows that make intricate hair, petals, leaves, flesh and silhouette.
