    FEATURED ARTIST

    Karl Bielik

    Bielik makes visceral process driven oil paintings where the surface evolves out of chance
    encounters between marks and colour, the paintings are often heavily layered and reveal
    the history and doubt of the decision making.
    He works on thirty or so paintings at a time which range in scale from intimate to large.
    Drawings, diagrams or photographs may inform the work in its formative stages, but
    essentially his work emerges from the physical process of painting.
    Loose oily wounds and thick emulsions offset light glazes and dribbles, ‘I paint, wipe out,
    paint over, turn the canvasses around, print, blot, mask, pour paint, scrape and scratch. I
    shift from one piece to another and don’t focus on completion, just nudging a painting
    from one position to another’.
    The studio is the place where practically everything happens and the paintings are given a
    long incubation time to evolve and develop a sense of completeness. In contrast to my
    sometimes emotive imagery, banal solitary words form my titles, tempering and balancing
    the character of my work.
