“With a kind of innate imagery Lukas Walcher choses themes to which he immediately transposes in his own universe of forms. The forms themselves seem to come to him directly and forcefully, giving the impression that the process of painting and observing is one and the same. This is quite exciting, since he seems to see a secret in the objects he paints, or rather, he continues to tell stories and create forms which are not immediately recognisable. For me, this subjective approach puts into question an allegedly objective way to observe and describe a given form. In reality: What is it that can actually be recognised from a human perspective?“
–Frank Pieperhoff, KUNSTGUT Akademie für Bildende Kunst, Berlin

“I put myself inside the painting and try to experience it from this perspective, really from within. That is how energy is created via the process of painting. At the same time, I return from inside the painting with new energy.“
–Lukas Walcher
