This painting was completed during the 2014-15 school year by Luke Allee for the Drawing Techniques course at OSU-Cascades. The mediums used are pen, watercolor and multimedia paper.

Luke Allee is a student at OSU-Cascades pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts. He has been featured in many student showcases for the last five years; and during the month of January, Allee’s art will be displayed at Deschutes Brewery. His pieces each express something different, but they are tied together with what he calls his signature line work.

The sets of three paintings, tryptics, on the right and the left are Luck Allee's most recent works completed in the Fall Term of 2015 durig the OSU-Cascades Drawing Concepts course. The center pieces are prints carved by Luke Allee during the 2014-15 school year in another Drawing Concepts Course.

Squiggling lines lead the viewer up, down and around each piece. The triptychs, pictures featured on three-piece panels are his most recent works. The tree (featured in photo) is older and expresses the depth that can be produced by small chaotic lines coming together into a calm, serene image. The wood-print self-portrait is all recycled material and it earned an honorable mention for alternative medium.

“Many people get degrees in subjects they don’t love. I love art and I want to do what I love,” said Allee.

Allee believes that art can be found everywhere, and encourages people to respect others’ opinions.

“The most valuable skill I’ve learned in school is to listen to what others have to say and respect their interpretations. There is always something that can change. Be aware. Art is everywhere and inspiration is everywhere. Art is in all of us. Express it. We are all so different, and don’t be discouraged if someone doesn’t see the same thing you do,” Allee said.
