Red Herrings of Greenland  – Original Painting

Part of the “No word is an Ö-land” series. Lucas Stolz is fishing in this alphabet soup, finding terms that are important to him, flowers of the lead desert. Concepts for images emerge from plays on words. Like the idea of ​​the Red Herring, which stands for a deliberate lie, a deception. What if the theme of an image is Greenland, yet the painting includes ALL the other colours, except green?

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 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.
