Karl Haendel is an artist who makes drawings, installations, and billboards. As Haendel describes his own practice, he "tries to make honest work about contradiction and hypocrisy." He bases his drawings on found and self-made photographs, constructing a liminal reality with the artist’s very personal reference points. His work engages the role of drawing as performance and record, executed with a coherence of narrative and subject as journey. Haendel thematically investigates time, romantic exploration, and failure.
