The third season in row, I write about the stained glasses of Aleksandar Lukic, and every new assessment of his works evokes in me the need to present to the observer the incredible light layer that achieves essential, aerie, vigorous balance of the human person, emitting troubled emotions anyway, whether they are small decorations on the walls of the most beatiful houses, sculptures called "The wave of wind", lamps or mirrors.
"Nimbuses" over the heads of saints, are slowly disassembled through - with divine love - irradiated body, when Almighty, leading the hand of the master, gives the divine light and his gentleness with ordinary everyday items of incredible beauty. Thus, Lukic's observer away. His fascination with light and colored glass pearls becomes recognizable, while they attract observers in the same way as the author, even if they are in the composition of sacred motives, or built only as decoration on vigil-lamps that lit before icons in the twilight.
Particulary important is the fact that in time, when the GUARDIANS OF OUR DESTINY poisoning nature and air we breathe, there in front of as, like dimming shine of the Temple - architecture sent to calm the human passion for destruction, touching a fraction of the calming universe, are composed in the name of the nobility of human life and universal beauty of nature.
Many homes in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Subotica and other places have become warm, family nest of voluptuous beauty. Through soldering iron, copper and lead wires, glass, various structures and Tiffany pearls, the need to find refuge in unique ambient of our personal residence, enters lightly into our homes, and life too. Everything that Aleksandar Lukic has done, can not be arrayed in a kind of - isms, but these manual works have the attraction that each of us would chose in his own ambient.
