Ceci, c’est un Ö – Original Painting

The Swedish word for a small island is Ö — a sign that in itself looks like an abstraction of an island. Every day we are inundated with content — Lucas Stolz is fishing in this alphabet soup, looking for terms that stand out. Every day, concepts for images emerge from this kind of wordplay. Like the idea of ​​this piece, referencing Magritte’s famous piece in its title, it plays with the fact that the sound of Ö is like that of the word “egg” in French, the piece also looks like an island, but is really just an image showing a series of Ö-letters. So it is about the interplay of words and images. Without this title, can you detect the signs in the picture, or does it become a landscape, similar to what you might see when looking out of a plane whole flying over the ocean? Are there little islands to be detected on the surface? Zoom in and back out, your interpretation changes.

It is said that no one is an island, we are all connected to many others. Lucas Stolz feels the same way about words — changing between different languages ​​and stories, concepts change in meaning and in character. True to his motto, the artist paints these words; he writes pictures, in which the calligraphy is usually difficult to read — but can be felt all the more.

Note: This piece is ready to hang and is mounted with 2 cm of distance to the wall. This way, the back of the panel, which is also painted, illuminates the wall with a colourful halo.
