Starting from the top, manually cut depron strips were painted at a height of 5mm on the landing side with black impasto acrylic paint and lightly pressed on. This process was repeated until the object height was reached. The surface was then painted three times with impasto acrylic paint (once with black and twice with white). After the drying phase, the surface was sanded until the first traces of the original structure emerged again.
The object is glued to the frame and therefore only offered with frame in the indicated size.
Based in: Munich
The German artist Markus Krug was born in 1965 in Singen. Today he lives and works in Munich.
For more than 20 years, Markus Krug has been exploring structural concepts in series that build on each other. Planning, clarity, implementation: in different techniques sculptures, objects and installations are created, they resemble each other, could be connected like a kind of matrix.
Markus Krug creates homogeneous, reduced works from a wide variety of materials: paper, cardboard, Styrofoam or polystyrene foam. Due to the manual working method, minimal differences arise, which are emphasized or even laminated by the application of acrylic paint, mainly in black or white. The viscosity, quantity and handling of the paint is always changed from object to object, while the reference to the origin always remains.
Markus Krug has exhibited his artwork in several solo exhibitions, including at the Kunstverein Bellevue-Saal, Wiesbaden, Germany (2016), Galeriehaus Nord, Nuremberg, Germany (2019) or Üblacker-Häusl, Munich, Germany (2021). He has been invited to numerous group exhibitions in Istanbul (Turkey), Vienna (Austria), Munich, Berlin and Leipzig (Germany).
