Remembered

About

Michal Lukasiewicz portrays his subjects with the tenderness and warm sensuality of the High Renaissance, combined with the vibrancy of Pop art in his use of bright colours. Working primarily in acrylic on a gesso ground, his works are almost monochrome, if not for the patches and shades of off-white, ochre, sienna, pink, greys, and neon oranges and yellows. The off-white in his paintings comes entirely from his use of gesso; he works with his canvas on the wall or floor to give him a firm surface to rub through the thin layers of acrylic to the gesso beneath. Despite the contemporary expressiveness of his palette, his nude subjects, mostly women, have a mysteriously quiet nature about them that recalls famous figures in art like Leonardo’s “Mona Lisa”, or Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring”. “My paintings are of the human form, the soft tenderness that it can transfer to the viewer; never the anger of the world but the peace and harmony that humans are capable of. I have been influenced by living in Belgium and painters of the Benelux countries and I try to show the placid side of the subject using light, the reflection of light and the shadows to emphasise the subjects form and curves. I never use colour but the subtleness of tone to achieve these effects. I try to achieve the smoothness of skin and the body so no brush strokes are visible to the viewer. I have developed this technique for painting the human body and have works in many collections.” Michael was born in Pulawy, Poland in 1974 but has been living and working in Antwerp for over 15 years.
