Annika Nuttall Gallery presents Across Lines by Carsten Beck. The exhibition is open from 08.09.2023-07.10.2023.

There is something about its expression that transcends in time – The light.

Objects are waiting to be explored. In the pulsating rhythmic daily hustle, I take my camera and search for architectural perspectives, enveloped in the contours of the building, where light cascades over objects and creates entirely new universes in an instant – like fleeting moments of beauty.

We often forget to pause, to be present in the moment, and let our thoughts linger, to see what emerges in the spaces or places we find ourselves in. Instead of chasing the unknown, we should reflect on our lives and reconcile with the opportunities we have already created. It is an invitation to explore the current space with a curious mind and study the light that is being reflected, creating complementary play of shadows – a snapshot where curiosity is the guiding force.

I always try to discover something new within the fusion of architectural forms: A symphony of rectangles, triangles, circles, and the contrasts that meet in a harmony of measurements and precision to the smallest detail. Perfection doesn’t always prevail, but rather what is thought through in its construction. A creation traced with reflective intentions carries a power that potentially transcends the superficial.

I have always been fascinated with architecture that not only creates physical spaces but also transforms them into spaces that provide something to think about. This thought I would like to recreate in my works. What is a good motif? Is it when something is composed? To me the simplest things are the most fascinating.
