DESCRIPTION

The wonderful "Children of the Wind" has been selected as a finalist for the 3rd Toolip International Art Contest

This picture of a flock of seagulls was shot one evening while standing on the shores of Lake Constance in Bregenz, Austria. A predilection site for the artist, the lake always seems to deliver an infinite source of inspiration for Karl, who finds beauty in the inconspicuous objects washed on the lake's banks and reads messages from the flora and fauna surrounding it. This photograph comes to complement the four driftwood sculptures of this exhibition. The seagulls' image is a soothing example of Karl's attempt at interpreting Nature. In this photograph, the seagulls move and dance fearlessly around us. They appeared to invite the viewers to fly with them and join them in their freedom. The picture captures the effortless and smooth flight of the birds. The warm sunset light emphasises the gull's feathers and contrasts with the cool and deep hues of the water. This photo tempts us to get lost in its depth and take flight with the gulls. As we peer into it, we become part of the flock and only wish to be as carefree as these birds are.

 

BIOGRAPHY

"The artist, whose skill is confirmed by an impressive array of awards—including first place at the world's largest snow sculpture competition in Harbin, China in 2012, followed by second place in 2015, the Hessian state prize at the national competition for literature and art, and the audience award for the best sculpture in Perm—demonstrates a wide variety of techniques. His artistic range extends from painting, drawing, sculpture, and installations to photography and performance art.

His artworks are vivid depictions of his sensations, mixed with emotions and impressions. These forms and colors are clarified by the artist to make them visible to others. From seemingly inconspicuous things, faces, animals, people, and forms emerge, which thus become apparent to the observer. The objects no longer appear inconspicuous but, on the contrary, evoke in others the emotional states the artist experienced during their creation. Thus, the artist reveals the beauty of the inconspicuous. Karl Pont captures moments for the viewer which would otherwise be lost.

His art deals with freedom and the vastness reflected in the loss of boundaries. Free from societal constraints, free from pain, an escape from the machinery of existence. It reflects a longing for silence, inner balance, and tranquility, which are also recurring themes that move the artist."
