Born 1979 in Wickede / Ruhr (Westphalia), Germany
Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

When Caroline Kryzecki started to work with lines during a residency in Istanbul five years ago it was a reflection of what she observed. An abstract reference to the city’s architecture and everyday objects, its rich ornamental decorations, patterns and textiles. The result was a series of works on paper that enforce the decomposition of geometrical forms and shapes – as the artist still used them in her early lacquer works on wood – in favour of compositions that are occupied by lines, which run parallel, overlap and form new shapes and ornamental structures. To date, Kryzecki still works with ballpoint pen on paper, yet her compositions meanwhile build on a complex grid formation that relies on a detailed documentation system. Each direction of lines, each sequence of colour is drawn up with great care.
