Oskar Korsár (b.1977, Umeå, Sweden), studied Graphic Design and Illustration at the Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. In a modernist sense, the surfaces of Oskar’s drawn and sculpted subjects writhe with restless narratives that invite association. Here, the fractured line, the remnant, and trace of a pencil speak with the same timber as the sensibility held by a signifying form. Oblique and carnivalesque, Oskar’s work can be described as a catalogue of proposals; that which is put forward is left to us viewers to decipher.
