Pulse by Fitzhugh Karol consists of five totemic, undulating forms carved with chainsaw and handtools. The artist intends his pieces to be engaged with, touched, walked through and around. He uses scale, texture and repeating forms to connect visitors to the works. Karol uses tar to achieve the deep black surface. In addition to large sculpture, Karol also crafts jewelry with a number of iconic forms reoccurring across the different media. For the past 4 years Karol has focused on a growing body of large-scale outdoor pieces and unique commissions.
Fitzhugh Karol (b. 1982) was born in New Hampshire and currently lives and works in Brooklyn. Fitzhugh studied at Rhode Island School of Art and Design and Skidmore College
