ArtAge about




ArtAge is Karls philosophy and practice as a poet-sculptor inspired by ideas of Giordano Bruno (1548 - 1600), Baruch Spinoza (1632 - 1677), Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862) and Arne Næss (1912 – 2009).

A stone, a rock or a tree, a natural place, a landscape he thinks is an artefact of nature, a message from earth or a prayer to the sky.

It can become borrowed and expressed by artworks but without destroying their idea and secrets.

In this context, ArtAge™ means creating in responsibility based on the art of seeing and feeling.

Like the master Japanese gardener in Michel Tournier's novel Gemini , Karl wants to keep the soul of a stone by renouncing from carving with a hammer, a chisel or saw.

The artist as a beholder.

Collecting stones instead of breaking them.

A very different concept of sculpture.
