Lush is an abstract depiction of a sensual group scene in which the woman in the center of the piece is receiving aftercare from 5 lovers surrounding her. The warm, rosy hues and curved lines of the painting convey the tender, sexy sentiment of the scene, while the prismatic lines and refractory gestures allude to a crystalline, narcotic overlay. In this piece, Mika hopes to submerge the viewer in the lush intoxication of group play and the feeling of “drugs, sex and rock and roll” that many curious, queer identifying people experience when coming into their sexuality.
