This is a post made in honour of artist Karl Schultz-Köln, who passed away on Dec 28th, 2013, in the age of 92; the photo shows a candle, lit beside his deathbed and mirrored in one of his artworks.
His life course spanning from pre-nazi Germany to post-modern Sweden, Karl experienced very directly more significant and dramatic shifts of perspectives than most of us ever will. Through his long-time work as an industrial designer and a painter, he developed a deep sense of art as a means of life. Finally, he came to be the patron and friend of all of us engaged in Art Lab Gnesta, sharing work as well as fiesta.

Most of all, I think, he treasured freedom.
Thank you, Karl. I wish you a peaceful and great last journey.
