Ever heard Monet saying he’d like to paint the air around flowers, but feels incapable of doing so, and therefor he paints flowers? Well, I’m trying to paint the air!

Liis Koger, born 23.12.1989, is an Estonian painter and poet. Liis received a degree in Painting, Fine Arts from the University Of Tartu (2013). She minored in Theology and was enrolled in Psychology courses. Liis has written and published three poetry books. She started launching a career of freelance artist during her studies. 

Liis has had personal exhibitions in Rome (Italy), curated by Achille Bonito Oliva, the 45th Venice biennale curator; Berlin (Germany), Milan (Italy) and many different locations in Estonia. She has participated in joint exhibitions and biennals in London, Luxembourg, Stockholm and many exhibitions at homeland, from Tallinn Airport to Swedbank main building in Tallinn.

Liis's paintings are permanently shown in public spaces like The Parliament Of Estonia in Toompea, Tallinn, and The Institute Of Mathematical Statistics in Tartu. Her works have been set up for different auctions, such as Bukowskis Market in Helsinki and Stockholm, and also for charity reasons, like the non-profit events organised by The British-Estonian Chamber Of Commerce and by Haus Gallery.

Her paintings have been reproduced in magazines, on textiles and are honoured by musicians: her paintings are on LP designs and she has done live painting at music festivals numerous times. Her works can be found in galleries and private collections in Estonia, Finland, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The United Kingdom, The United States Of America.

She applauds to the power that colours can bring forth. Her eye for abstract art is strongly based on intimacy and nature and the effects they can have on expanding human perception and creating emotional well-being. She says what matters most, is inside the painting. “Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the truth.” Edmund Burke

She explains her process further: “Through Adyashanti, I heard what Krishnamurti once said: the child will never see a bird again after you say it's a bird. He looks at it as it was just a bird instead of seeing what the bird actually is. To me it seems, we as humanity have seen and been trying to understand and control everything hard enough to stop seeing the things for what they really are and also limiting their possibilities for what we think they are for.

Abstract art makes you question and wonder. Often, you see more than you would have expected and day by day, you start discovering even more. It is the art for wanderers. I don't want people to look for certain, but to accept the never-ending change within and without; and never stop wondering. To be amazed and live in the now that is always anew.”
