About Michi Lukas
His works span a range of mediums including paint, pencil, print and installation. His canvases often include a strong element of black and white, focusing on the monochrome and the power of contrast. His paintings sometimes feature injections of colour that emphasise this power of juxtaposition and comparison.
The gestural, impulsive brushstrokes are powerful and explosive. Lukas’s innovative use of white paint in his canvases gives his paintings a unique and captivating freshness, lightness and clarity. The directional movement in his pieces often stems from a particular point: alluding to the qualities of inspiration and impulse, expanding and developing from an initial source.
The cohesive yet unpredictable results straddle the boundaries of the unstable, finding the perfect equilibrium between volatile and established.
