Christopher Ian Lutz
Christopher Ian Lutz is a Los Angeles-based writer with an emphasis on contemporary painting and photography, and he has written for several art publications, including exhibition catalogs for Stephen Romano Gallery and the Morbid Anatomy Museum.
Contemporary art is strongly influenced by symbolism and natural and spiritual archetypes in order to make social, political, and spiritual statements, and therefore much of his writing has delved into the philosophy that inspires artwork. Contemporary African and Middle Eastern artists are currently of particular interest and are becoming a focus in his writing. He believes that seeing international cultures and social issues through the lens of art provides a clearer vision than what is perceived through commercial news media.
