Luka Uršič: I See Lights

Luka Uršič: I See Lights
7 July–5 August 2023

You are cordially invited to the opening of Luka Uršič's solo exhibition I See Lights, which will take place on Friday, 7 July 2023, at 7 p.m. at the KiBela Space for Art.


Luka Uršič has been searching for a balance between visual art and music for twenty years. Everything he does is imbued with a search for the boundary between what we see and what we can only suspect. His art is always intimate at its core because he translates it into the world through his deepest experience of the creative process.

“If I knew how, I would create art with the power of the effects of psychedelics. But my art doesn't care about my desires. It demands total surrender from me, and when I feel I have mastered it, it shows me its infinity and forces me to gaze humbly into the inconceivable.”

The exhibition will feature new canvases and “light drawings” that the artist creates by manipulating artificial light travelling through plexiglass. The impetus for the new works stems from a desire to use light as a direct painting medium and the subject matter stems from the fascination with the rich mythology of unknown flying objects.

“The theme of the unknown is reflected as an obsession with discovering new possibilities of interpreting reality and searching for images of a future in which the human being has already made contact with the existence of life in other dimensions. The bending of time and space is something that painting, music and the phenomenon of unknown occurrences in the sky have in common. The ability to see something that does not exist within our perception, that is not visible to our senses. Where there is an infinite void, there can also be an infinite saturation, and when images appear to me in the artistic process, I always wonder whether I’ve invented them or whether perhaps they have always existed and were just hiding behind the veil of everyday perception.”

Luka Uršič is a painter and musician who was born on 30 August 1982 in Maribor. He is a professional graphic designer and a former student of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, where he majored in painting. He is a versatile artist who has done numerous independent projects in both visual and musical arts in his twenty-year artistic career. He has also collaborated and continues to collaborate with great names in the art scene both at home and abroad. In all his collaborations, he maintains and develops his unique artistic language.
