About the Artist

Luke Rion is a New Zealand born artist, who is currently based out of Melbourne. For the last decade his practice has explored figurative and still life subjects, with a particular focus on our nostalgic relationship with objects and the negative space in which they inhabit.

 In his latest body ‘Lost Relics’ Rion journeys through childhood video game nostalgia, and how something so vivid and so relevant in youth fades and eventually becomes discarded and lost. A comment on our ephemeral rituals with technology.
