Abstract composition 03

Carsten Beck

Beck’s greatest inspiration for his artwork also comes from often going for long walks to capture new perspectives and angles. He translates this inspiration into new sketches and ideas. Beck tries to relate his work to mid-century art while drawing inspiration from it. In addition, one of his favourite architects is Alvar
Aalto. His art doesn’t necessarily need to represent or reflect anything more than the fact that it is a painting, because sometimes things don’t have to make sense or represent something concrete. It’s really about composition, as well as the balance between black and white; from the layering of colours to the placement of figures. Symmetrical and asymmetrical aspects must be in place from the beginning. There is a difficulty in making the simple look interesting. Thus, Beck likes to challenge himself.

About the artist

Danish artist Carsten Beck (b. 1986) lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. In fact, his paintings can be considered a Scandinavian minimalist expression transferred to oil on canvas. The paintings are a mixture of a geometric perspective on shapes and forms with a mathematical attention to detail and high quality materials. Beck’s training in printmaking and photography gives the artist options to see different perspectives in his art, as he creates new geometric forms in a powerful and contradictory colour scheme.
