Lucky DeBellevue’s works emphasize domesticity in various art incarnations, all evident in his process. Wood veneer is ironed into sculptural forms. Surfaces are sometimes washed, scrubbed, eliminated. Evidence of everyday activity runs throughout each piece—the ritual of eating finds its way into the work, shells which would normally be discarded become patterns on printed linen. Similarly, DeBellevue’s works make malleable the properties of two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality, painting and printing, sculpture and installations, without sacrificing its original art concept, practice, or form.
Originally from Louisiana, Lucky DeBellevue is a long time New York-based artist. Selected solo exhibitions include NGBK, Berlin, Feature Inc., New York, Björkholmen Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden, Whitney Museum of American Art at Philip Morris and a site specific project at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, USA. His extensive group exhibition history at museums and galleries include the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, Germany, Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris, France, the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, USA, The Dalarnas Museum, Falun, Sweden, MoMa PS1, Long Island City, NY, and White Columns, New York.
