Biography

Based in London and Madrid, Luke Caulfield makes photorealistic paintings that are often filtered through digital processes that accentuate flaws and draw attention to the unreliability of media and documentation. His subject matter is diverse and has included everything from teenage angst and Norwegian black metal culture to 20th-century neon and Renaissance-era religious painting. Often described as anachronistic, Caulfield’s practice engages with the present as much as with the past. Caulfield has encased many of his finished works in wood, concealing and obscuring their compositions. He has also used the notion of the doppelganger to explore ideas of authorship and owndership, attributing osme of his works to the alter ego he has developed.
