Acquired directly from the artist by the present owner

In his many sojourns across Asia, Arturo Luz found inspiration from the ancient structures — ornate temples and forts among them — that caught his discerning eye and translated them into a series of works — panoramic architectural landscapes that he rendered to the bare minimum. In this facet of Luz’ art, the artist does not execute literal renderings of these aforementioned edifices; rather, he carefully strips away their embellishments and creates pieces that are drawn from memory — “imagined, transformed, invented” — thus resulting in artworks that are methodological, with lines and forms that are elegantly precise.
