Portrait einer großen Vase 01
180 x 140 cm
Oil on canvas
This is a unique work, hand-signed by the artist on the back of the canvas.
In his work, Timur Lukas frequently depicts vases that he derives from childhood memories. These vases are synonymous with bodies to him, sharing a neck, a throat, a set of shoulders, legs and muscular arms. At the same time, vases remain one of the oldest cultural products in human history - they are a symbol for victory as a cup and represent death in form of an urn. Their versatility and shapes are endless and for Lukas, vases act as vessels of memory, moods, characters, stories and landscapes.
