HENZEL STUDIO

Uniquely straddle the line between art for observation and art for utility - since 1999

L'Officiel


Henzel Studio’s ethos is based on the artistic practice of Calle Henzel, founder and creative director. Over the past 20 years, he has translated his artistic practice as painter and collage artist into the medium at hand, positioning Henzel Studio as one of the most progressive carpet brands in the world. Since the launch of 'Henzel Studio Collaborations' at Barneys New York Madison Avenue in 2014 during Frieze Art Fair, Henzel Studio has developed limited edition art rugs with some of the most influential contemporary artists and estates from the past century. Every rug made by Henzel Studio is a masterpiece of craftsmanship and an artwork in itself.

Henzel x Warhol

Henzel Studio is honored to further its collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation of Visual Arts on a second collection of handmade art rugs based on one of Warhol’s most controversial yet abstract series of works, his 'Oxidation Paintings' from 1978. After two years of painstaking development and production, the result is a remarkably seamless adaptation, where similar oxidation outcomes and comparable textures have been achieved. When making his Oxidation paintings, Warhol laid his canvases down on the floor, coated them with copper paint, and then directed his assistants or visitors to his studio to urinate on them while the paint was still wet. The acid from the urine oxidized the metal in the copper paint, creating an abstract shimmering effect. Insisting on the importance of artistic skill when creating the paintings, Warhol explained: “If I asked someone to do an Oxidation painting, and they just wouldn’t think about it, it would just be a mess. Then I did it myself – and it’s just too much work – and you try to figure out a good design.” 

Warhol’s Oxidation paintings resulted in an abstract exploration of differently shaped stains, intricate color-shifts and shimmering surfaces. Far removed from his previous work, which to date had been largely derived from photography and transferred to canvas via silk-screening, this was the first time he committed to a certain kind of painterly abstraction reminiscent of Abstract Expressionism. Calle Henzel, founder and creative director of Henzel Studio, experimented extensively with various techniques that in practice might seem contradictory and destructive – but one that allows for a closer dialogue with the original works. The abstractions, freeform shapes and variable pile heights of these rugs are coincidentally closely tied with Calle Henzel’s signature designs, many of which are informed by free-form shapes, interplay between volume and dimensions, effects of erosion and geological formations – characteristics that have carved a trademark place for Henzel Studio in art and interior design. Aesthetics aside,  Joakim Andreasson, curator Henzel Studio Collaborations / Heritage, found it intriguing to explore adapting works that were created on the same plane field as the one rug traditionally inhabit – the floor. With the Oxidation Paintings being executed through elements of chance, random and performance comparable to the making of Yves Klein’s paintings, it is compelling to see how these engaging works in turn are given an alternate life as elements of physical and domestic engagement.
