Valerian Loik "Seened ja kann"

Valerian Loik "Seened ja kann"

Valerian Loik was able to try, as his teacher Ado Vabbe in “Pallas”, several styles and approaches. Loik, having worked as a lecturer for decades, often approached totally ordinary everyday activity – for example mushroom gathering – with the means of high art. Here Loik tries to turn into art an act that is familiar from our everyday routine. Parallel with the still-life of Alfred Hirv is still not quite exact: when the aim of Hirv was exposing of skilful mastering of the classical painting technique, then Loik has used mushrooms as a pretext to test intensive colours. This picture contains nothing strange, both the depicted objects and autumn colours are from our immediate neighbourhood and from our own experiences. So it seems that Loik has been able to paint a picture that is more true to life than any other.
