Ahead of Carl Krull’s current show at V1 Gallery, which opened over the weekend, we paid a visit to his studio to take a look at the new work. Situated at the top of an ancient building in Copenhagen overlooking the harbor, the impressive work space is a perfect setting to get the creative juices going and has indeed housed other artists throughout its history.
Seismic is an appropriate title for Krull’s new work as he uses a very distinctive technique to produce his images by forming “topographical maps” of his subjects with repetitive linework. This way of drawing came to him during a road trip across the United States last year where he worked while sitting in the moving car and letting every jolt and bump in the road affecting the flow of the lines. Take a look at the photos below and come back for coverage of the new exhibition if it piques your interest.
