Sculpture by the Sea. Cottesloe, Perth, 2019
Art walking in spring 2018 on 2000 meters hight in the Alps of Switzerland I found left overs of an old roof one time protecting travelers against the weather.
The rusty metal plates were formed by the stony ground, snow and ice, storms and the sun with written comments of passing people.
Inspired by this find I started gold covering these pieces of culture and installed them in the mountain like gold leaves lost in time.
Back to Sweden I prepared my proposal for Sculpture by the Sea based on this art experience in the Alps: five aluminium plates, the same as we use for the big air planes - like crumbled pieces of paper or really big gold leaves.
Walking along the trail in Cottesloe the people could get the feeling of whirling fragments of wealthy lost by someone who is moving on walking on his way to unknown places.
Heysen Sculpture Biennial. Adelaide, 2019
Heysen purchased land to protect the magnificant gum trees which he loved to paint.
He often depicted his concerns in his paintings, including bush fires and trees that needed protection from destruction.
In October 2018 Karl was invited to The Cedars, Hahndorf, the home and garden of Sir Hans Heysen, one of Australia's most revered artists.
The Cedars will host the Heysen Sculpture Biennial from 25 February to 30 April 2019. Karl's Golden Gum is located at and inspired by a key place where Heysen was working for his amazing light paintings of unbelievable eucalyptus trees.
