Open Studio: Robbie Karmel

23 March | FREE EVENT

Studio residency artist, Robbie Karmel (ACT) shared a conversation with local artist Benjamin Forster as they discussed Karmel’s residency and approach to traditional and expanded contemporary drawing.

During his residency at PICA, Robbie Karmel extended his inquiries into drawing on non- flat surfaces and working with static and animated projection. Engaging with the total space of the studio, Karmel constructed works using tiled sheets of paper, mirrors and projections. Karmel experimented with drawing and mark-making on varied surfaces and using mirrors to flex his optical muscles, work out his metacarpals and motor skills to become a two- handed ambidextrous drawing athlete.
