Anuska De Luca delivered her first solo exhibition in 1989, at the age of 19. The exhibition, Shift, included figurative work executed in house paint on canvas and pastel on paper.
She studied Fine Art at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane in the mid nineties, before moving to London where she established a career in fashion. She returned to Australia in 2001 and lived in Sydney where she worked as a designer. Her collections of bags and other accessories were shown at Australian Fashion Week in 2003 and 2004 and she subsequently designed collections for some well acknowledged names in fashion.
She then resumed painting in earnest, working and exhibiting in Europe between 2005 and 2006. She returned to Brisbane in 2006 and delivered her sixth exhibition of paintings, Dreaming of Home, at Graydon gallery, followed by Connection at Percolator gallery in 2012.
Her following exhibition "Fashion the Theatre Of Life" was commissioned by the Queens Plaza Brisbane for the G20 in 2014.
And her most recent exhibition Direction in 2017 at Percolator gallery.
Primarily a painter De Luca’s figurative work explores the unspoken emotional details between people. Her landscapes and still life works also strive to find an emotional response from the viewer.
“My paintings are channelled information from my subconscious searching for resolution. I try to not over think or over work the canvas and sometimes it all comes together; colour and form in harmony.”
Anuska De Luca’s work is represented in numerous private collections in both Australia and the United Kingdom.
