CURRENT STUDIO GUESTS April - May Luke Burton (1983) is a British artist who lives and works in London. He attained a BA in Painting from Chelsea College of Art in 2005 and a MA in Sculpture from Royal College of Art in 2013. Luke is preoccupied with the status of ornament and decoration and its relationship to contemporary art and society. His work explores the question: what is the relevance of ornament to contemporary art when a fundamental function of so much art appears to be ornamental? He is also interested in the idea of ambivalence as it manifests aesthetically, politically and symbolically within society, but also ambivalence as a potentially productive mode or attitude within artistic practice.
