Floral Masterpieces

The earlier series of Lukas Johannes Aigne‘s works focussed on the key issues of awareness and understanding, for which he used a wide range of subjects, and he also produced a variety of self portraits. His present works concentrate on large-scale representations of owers. Flowers are a symbol of vanity, and the relatively short life of their blooms reminds us drastically of the transience of all life. They are one of the key motives in the history of art – starting from the vine leaves and tendrils depicted in Pompeii, through the painted oral ornaments in the books of the Middle Ages, up to the herbs and plants shown on the Ghent altarpiece. Aigner‘s works take up this theme, dealing with it in a variety of ways, and particularly the connection to still life paintings of the Baroque period is apparent in his techniques. His larger- than-life oral creatrions ll the whole canvas, spotlighting the leaves, owers and buds. The noble French tulips and the rosettes of the English rose often serve as his models. They ght for attention and gain their place in the picture only during the process of painting. In the cycle „Oksana through the owers“ he weaves drawings of his wife into the paintings, where she becomes the artist‘s muse, representing all women in a play with the blooms. Lukas Johannes Aigner indeed plays sensually with the owers and the light in which he depicts them. He is constantly seeking aesthetic perfection in these oral still life paintings, arranging his models e ciently, and often producing an erotic e ect.
