“Colorful, juicy und delicious – this is what Ludovilk Myers’ new series of art works looks like. Kolly Gallery presents his series entitled Watermelons from 12th to 17th of October 2020.
Ludovilk Myers’ starts to paint with seemingly random angular and round shapes, suddenly in this mix and match of colors and forms he discovers figures of his favorite fruit – watermelon. Ludovilk Myers’ artistic practice lies always on the verge between figuration and abstraction. On closer look, the the red tinted color fields shows organic structures, while the blue and green sharp edges and angular fields are contrasted with them. Indeed the red fields with their organic shape and texture remind of a slice of melon.
Ludovilk Myer’s pictures speaks a double language. Abstraction does not always mean to get rid of objects. Often the parameters like colors and perspective are manipulated, so that the represented image is more difficult to read visually. The art of abstraction is about how much to anticipate and how much room can be left for interpretation. Therefore the interpretation of each beholder is individual. On the one hand there is luminous colorful picture, on the other there is an immediate recognition the shape of the motif.
Ludovilk Myers’ paintings allow the discovery and the joy of the ordinary. The utilization of daily and profane elements in artistic expression as well as the importance of every day objects, life and culture is identifiable with his artistic work. Therefore his vibrant paintings are powerful in their originality, which not stifled by education, socialization or even institutionalization, rather by the simplicity of daily life.
Ludovilk Myer’s artworks are not about inventing something new or finding a unique composition. It is rather about appreciating the ordinary and showing it from a completely individualized perspective. Strong individuality and the freedom to depict everyday life liberates his art from the compulsion to be elitist.”
