karl bielik: recent paintings

father 2011

the superman 2010

big bad wolf 2009

brand 2010

below 2010

flag 2010

arrow 2009

apostrophe 2011

ribbon 2009

roof 2011

working on a multitude of paintings at a time, karl bielik's brew of abstractions are developed in batches. irregular canvases cover his studio walls and floors, where he shifts from one painting to another, experimenting playfully with mark making.
formal lines taken from photographs and diagrams contrast loose oily wounds, thick emulsions offset light glazes and dribbles. bielik fluctuates between techniques, pushing and challenging the paint until a kind of harmony is met.
in contrast to this emotive imagery, banal solitary words form bielik's titles, tempering and balancing the melancholy character of his paintings; the result, a prolific collection of finely tuned sophisticated studies.

karl bielik lives and works in london.
