Merike Lugus

Recently I abandoned the world of realism in order to explore the abstract path. I’m encountering endless surprises while pursuing a freedom in expression, with the help of the brilliant colours and mediums of the new acrylics. I am drawn to the simplicity of Matisse but am also influenced by the exuberant, more intricate work of Hundertwasser. Somewhere in the background, the joy and whimsy of Paul Klee also beckons. Artists are constantly challenged by the tensions between balance and edginess in the use of space and color. Solutions are endless. In my work, my aim is to make the eye wander and find its own place of rest.
