An Update with Troels Carlsen

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 15, 2014
"I somehow see my painting as drawn paintings, if you can call it that." Troels Carlsen told us in the August, 2013 issue of Juxtapoz. "I mostly look up vintage antique engravings or anatomical medical charts that I find at auctions or flea markets. I buy them, repaint them, and paint on top of the scenery or the stuff that's going on. I look at illustrations fo the muscles, nervous system, skeleton, or inner organs that you find on medical charts, and I paint new scenes into the structure." Troels hasn't stopped working since our feature with him last August, and to day we catch up and take a look at his new work...
