'Art is a game but a serious one' - Caspar David Friedrich - Karl Chilcott - www.karlchilcott-art.com
graduated as a PhD. based on five years of university studies in history, philosophy and culture, studio at the Swedish West Coast. Exhibitions and art projects in Scandinavia, Canada, Ireland, Iceland, Spain, France, Suisse, Germany, Austria, Chile, Australia & New Zealand.Karl works mostly site related with Art in Nature, sculpture and installation in The North, countries and landscapes around the North Atlantic.In the process he uses natural powers and materials like wood, stones, flowers, wool, skylines, tide, bones, snow, ice, fire and traces of humans. Creating and sculpting he feels physical and philosophical. He wants his art works become points of references to the nature we have, but are loosing within and without us. In this sense art shall contribute to a reconciliation between mankind and nature.Percipi - When his art work is done Nature takes over again. Left are traces and memories of ”another space” documented by a photographer with an independent view – his daughter Christine - and published as a series of art books by his own publishing house Percipi starting with The Last Stop which had book release in 2013 on Ireland by the Irish Prime minister Enda Kenny.Tree Academy - For teaching and cooperating with the youngest artists he started a Tree Academy with many projects for pupils in Sweden, Switzerland, France, Norway & Australia. The concept is focused on art, ethics and ecology.Karl is deeply engaged in Art and Ecology, questions about creating in responsibility for the art process as a whole, the environmental consequences of choosing place, materials, sources of energy, size and impact of an art work, but also emotional and psychological effects. When creating in Nature Karl always dismantles his installations before sunset without any traces left. In 2017 he became the initiator and founder of Nordic Green Art. The first conference of this platform was holt at the Swedish west coast supported by the Nordic Culture Fund with representatives from Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Finland and Norway.
