Karl Bossfeldt's work leans heavily into the visual element of Form. Lines also play a crucial role as they define the contour of the twisting, turning and outreaching shapes and direct our eye along all the details along the way. Take this photograph, for example; Our eye first see's the dot in the center, then that is split off into 5 matchstick like lines which gate larger and longer lines which reach to the tip of the petal like star.
White deer hold a place in the mythology of many cultures. Celtic people considered them to be messengers from the other world, and other pre-Indo-European cultures, especially in the north. The Celts believed that the white stag would appear when one was transgressing a taboo, such as when Pwyll trespassed into Arawn’s hunting grounds. Arthurian legend states that the creature has a perennial ability to evade capture; and that the pursuit of the animal represents mankind’s spiritual quest.
