#VOXEL15 - KARL BIELIK

This month RG features recent paintings by London based artist Karl Bielik.

Working on a multitude of paintings at a time; Bielik’s abstractions are developed in batches. Irregular canvases cover his studio walls, 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. In contrast to this emotive imagery, banal solitary words form Bielik’s titles, tempering and balancing the melancholy character of his paintings.

His work has been in numerous shows at home and abroad, most notably The Marmite, Creekside and Lexmark Art Prizes in the U.K.

He is the Founder and Director of Terrace Gallery and Studios in East London, where he is based.
