"Heckaville: Pictures from Home."
Luke in Heckaville
Pancake House Rocks!
This is Luke Forsyth's Portland debut solo show, "Heckaville: Pictures from home." This site-specific, installation work is a loose psychological self-portrait, that he calls "a mind map giving physical streets to a dream scape shadow world." The people are friendly and accept him as one of their own. It is a beautiful city you should come enjoy it for yourself.
Luke Forsyth has been creating art since he was a little kid, which he continues to do till this day. Facilitating guerilla art shows since 2003, his focus on collaborative art making and membership in several collective art groups has let Luke enjoy a certain amount of artistic acclaim. His first group effort was with Empire Squared collective of Eureka, Ca, where he helped convert a warehouse into the group's headquarters. Next was the multidisciplinary all star group called the Jets, creating several shows and mural sized works during it's short existence. Most recently Luke's focus has been pulled between The Experimental Team "Hope" Folk Art Ensemble Experiment and evilTeam. Both teams are currently producing performance, video and installation projects. You may have seen their work at the 2007 Portland Experimental Film Fest, AudioCinema Visual Collective, Grass Hut, X-mas on Tour, and Moshi Moshi, as well as a blockbuster show at Acorn Cafe.
