Make it Fluks

At the center of Fabio Luks' work are the image, the text, and the writing. Texts become images, and letters unfold their figurative potential. In his painting he develops his own pictorial cosmos, into which surreal elements as well as everyday things flow. Themes such as communication, transience, space, the absurd and the role of artists in society play an important role for him.

From an exhibition text by Michael Babics:

The playful approach to language, a field he has dealt with extensively in his previous art work, continues to play an important role. Newly, figurative and surreal aspects also flow in. A recurring motif in his new works is the ear. A body part that took on an increasing urgency for Fabio Luks with his preoccupation with Vincent van Gogh and the theme of Fame after Death. As an anatomically highly interesting entity, the ear possesses a plastic quality that is now explored in painting. In Fabio Luks' paintings, the ear detaches itself from the human body and its original function and appears autonomously in various contexts. The ear appropriates a figurative liveliness and looks like an eye out of the ear opening into the explorable world
