Art Holes by Andrea Lukic
Andrea Lukic is a Vancouver-based artist, zinemaker and musician.
“(When drawing) I feel like a time travelling coroner, and I speak to all kinds of ghosts and juries and see different pockets of history,” she says. “Somebody recently told me it’s like a map of a memory; I’m trying to remember a bad thing that happened. Lots of characters are reappearing, and the symbols are lifted from the mythology of my dreams which I have been documenting.
“My desk currently has a music box, crystals from a friend who passed away, a big ceramic poodle, a lamp with a red bulb and a photograph of a farmer from the Great Depression crying after the first rainfall. Although I always work alone in the physical world (I’ve never been able to share a studio), I work from anywhere private. But I’m a Gemini so I’m never lonely. I always have a disagreeable version of myself to talk down from a personal conspiracy.”
