Lisa: What are you working on at the moment?
Karl: I’m working in a series of collages of oil on cardboard which I started after I had hung my solo show and felt like exploring something new… I had been going through all my paintings to choose work for the show and it was overkill but had come across some old collages from early 2000 and thought id see where they might end up… plus the usual suspects of large paintings, a few small ones and a selection of works on paper. That’s a pretty normal state of affairs in my studio.
