Carsten Fock ABOUT PAINTING Free
Approx. 1 hour
Talk and Q&A with The Model’s Artist in Residence Carsten Fock
The Education Room at The Model
Carsten Fock works at developing a processual, analytical kind of painting, which evokes and comments on those forms of art that are associated with transcendence, ecstasy, and inner experience. His works are the result of pondering and thinking about painting, as well as of his own artistic development. The repeated swirls of paint, stains and smudges, which condense or disperse, are associated with the movement of thinking and feeling.
In his installations Fock wants to question and expand classic forms of representation of ‘modern’ painting: the integration of the space and the beholder, the deconstruction of the white cube, experimenting with proportions, perspectives, and scale.
This summer, The Model’s exhibition of Irish and international painting “Up The Walls” involves eight artists from around the world, including Irish artists, who are all exploring painting in new and innovative ways. As part of this exhibition, Berlin based Fock will make a full room installation painting in his manner of combining different materials and painterly gestures based on his situation in Sligo.
Fock will be The Model’s spring’s Artist in Residence, supported by Goethe Institut Irlande.
