Carsten Weck


Carsten’s task was not easy by any means, as he was put to bridle all the distant stories of wind on his canvas in the stillness of his atelier, just like admiral Langlais in the novel, ‘’Ocean Sea’’. By mixing and applying paint and plaster to surfaces, which he then arranges like puzzles inside the wooden frame panels (technique germ. zwischenvlies-technik), Carsten patiently restrains the energies of different winds: mistral, tramontane, bora, scirocco…. Each and every of Carten Weck’s paintings carries a story about wind, its strength and energy, its symbolism, and the side of the Earth it represents.
