The title TSUNAMI stems directly from Lechner's relationship with his work, and the manner in which he experiences it as the materials flood him like a wave which consumes his thoughts and memories.
The painting refers to a landscape which is seemingly mythological or ideal on one hand, yet on the other, it is inherently indebted to its own self- destruction.
A judgment day- like atmosphere engulfs everything and death hovers above and around the distorted figures, the threatening beasts and the vegetation.
Lechner's painting is composed of vast and expressive hand gestures.
The paintings are dense, and the paint is applied richly, to the point where one gets a sense of something that is on the verge of an explosion.
