Luke Sides has spent the better part of his life eating himself to death. He has consumed enough red meat and pork to clog his arteries to the point of irreversible damage. While eating this food has brought Luke much pleasure and happiness unfortunately Luke must cease and desist the consumption of all things FAT which is Ironic because of his stature…. So, Luke has used food as his main source of inspiration for his sculpture for the past 10 years. What started as adoration for these hedonistic foods has transformed into memorialization but either way these sculptures are a direct reflection of Luke Sides. Recently his work has focused almost exclusively on Cast Iron.
He has participated in a number of juried and group exhibitions throughout United
States, and is currently represented by Valley House Gallery and Sculpture Garden in Dallas TX, and Graphite Gallery in New Orleans, LA. Sides received hisMFA from theUniversityof North Texas in Denton TX.
