New York-based artist Karsten Krejcarek is a sculptor, photographer, and video maker. Karsten’s work is concentrated on esoteric narrative, mystical symbolism and natural landscape. In the recent past, Karsten participated in ceremonial, unworldly and magic plant rituals with a shamanistic healer in the jungles of the
Upper Amazon. It was during this time in the forest that he expanded upon ideas of multiplicity, telepathy, and symbiotic relationships between nature and the unconscious—concepts that have largely influenced his practice and informed the narrative structure of his recent work.
Karsten received a MFA from Columbia University in 2000, is an adjunct faculty member of New York University, and has regularly exhibited his work over the last twelve years. Currently, Karsten is (once again) fueled by a fiery determination, working very hard at making a serious go of his life and vocation, and is in casual search of a suitable mate.
