Donald Lokuta

Born 1946 in the USA


Donald Lokuta’s career spans over forty years. His artwork is published widely and has been included in over three hundred exhibitions.

 

Lokuta's work is in numerous private and museum collections, including the Art Museum at Princeton University; the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris; the Irish Museum of Moden Art in Dublin; the September 11 Memorial Museum in New York City; the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City; the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. and many others.

 

The series of photographs, In Plato’s Cave, is about a world of illusion and belief. The photographs were inspired by the “Allegory of the Cave” in Plato’s Republic. Plato presents us with the possibility that what we believe is truth may be based on illusion formed with limited information, and that we may accept what we see and hear at face value, bringing us no closer to the truth than shadow figures on the cave wall.
