MIXED MEDIA & ETCHING


Jack Lugg developed a unique style and technique of painting on thin translucent wax paper, creating random texture across the surface before adding the subject matter. His first works using this style are from Paris in 1950 when he studied under Mattisse but, unfortunately, these originals are untraceable. The earliest existing works in this graphic technique, or as Lugg called them his ‘mixed media works’, are from the 1960s.

In the 1990s and 2000s, Jack Lugg enjoyed producing his own textured handmade paper. He would cut this up into shapes to be integrated into compositions of small, delicate, mixed media works, an example of which is People who Span the Globe (2004) (Fig. 203).
