Brief Summary
Cut out bits of paper, fragments of hand drawn figures and colourful patterns are just some of the elements that make up Luke Bests approach to image making.

Often not having a fixed starting point Best forms narratives, layered with codes and references to a world that has long since passed. Borrowing from memories, stories of explorers, the age of discovery, antique furniture, science fiction and more Best creates both single and sequential images that have a feeling of unease and melancholy
The unseen is celebrated and our usual perspective on the world seems to have parts missing. There is often a sense that the work is unfinished, in a state of flux. It has had a life before and will continue to change after the viewer has moved on
