Wolf Karpowitz conjurs alternative intense worlds in his drawings and paintings. The sheer detail of a city scape that has been captured is overwhelming. The drawings generate a feeling of alienation particularly due to their dense pencil lines, strong unnatural sharp angles and monochromatic colour schemes. This slightly disorientating effect is lifted in his acrylic paintings where not only is there an effective use of primary colours but softer, more organic forms are present. It appears that Karpowitz is detailing two possible environments and the one which is the most desireable is the natural where people can idle time away in sail boats, gardens and inns.
