What Luciano says about his work
Luciano says about his art that when he is in the creative process "anything goes" and he switches off the logical mind. When you tune into a painting all expereinces meet at a certain point in our mind and all is as one. "It is a place of no words", and when you look at it "you see what you see and feel what you feel".

Anyone who looks at his work will know that it is saying something about some aspect of ourselves.

When asked how he knows when it is "done" is when it has a feeling of completeness.
