Exhibition & Residency:
October 2009 – October 2012
After earning his BFA from Rutgers in 2009, Karl Doerrer headed out to California in October of that year and began his residency at 18th Street Arts Center February 2010. He’s been working on his first series of work since his arrival and is half way through thus far.
Karl see his art as his version of a Rorschach test, but more fun a way for people to interact with art on an individual level and then talk about their perceptions with others. His paintings are abstract and intentionally ambiguous, so everyone can see different things; he tries to keep it simple, leaving interpretation up to the viewer.
