Renowned artist Luke Brown talks to us about his art, his art process, location independent lifestyle, the Grateful Dead, the dreamtime, life in and as a hologram, the imaginatrix, the relationship between our inner thoughts and our outer experiences, and much more.
Luke: My name is Luke Brown. I'm here in Bali, this has been my annual base for the past, almost 10 years now. Started out being here just a few months out of the year and every year it's extending more and more time here. It’s been a little more like home than anywhere else because this is where most of my stuff is. But I’ve been dividing my time too in having a grounded place to be able to do my work, work on my paintings, work on my sculptures, jewelry. Pretty much any medium I can get my hands on which Bali is so accommodating for. And yeah, it’s been the place where I’ve been able to have the kind of lifestyle that allows me to focus on the obsessively compulsive detail I like to put into my work. And then, have the rest of the year being simply nomadic and be able to take this around the world and have it bringing me out into the world. Be able to do exhibitions and be a part of festival environments and so, yeah.
Bram: So the art pretty much, I would imagine, influences your choices in terms of travel, world travel and your migratory patterns.
