Charles B. Luce is an American artist working primarily on paper, including drawings, prints, and paintings. Born in Phoenix, Arizona, he graduated from Amherst College in 1969 and received an M.A. from the University of Washington in 1971. His compositions incorporate abstracted forms that evoke a stream of consciousness and exploration of how meaning is constructed from symbols. In 2013 he stated, “I construct models from the confluence of various streams of reality — from the rational and irrational, and from the conscious and unconscious.” He began exhibiting his work regularly in the 1970s, and over the course of his long career has participated in solo and group exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, and abroad. His works are in numerous corporate and institutional collections including the US State Department, Library of Congress, New York University, and the Seattle Art Museum. Luce received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1991.
