Curt Asker is a Swedish artist, born in Stockholm in 1930. He studied painting in the Academy of Fine Art in Stockholm and, since 1981, he has been a member of Sweden’s Royal Academy of Arts. Curt Asker is above all a draughtsman and an observer. He continually draws during his walks in the countryside (he divides his life between a Swedish fishing village and the Provencal hills of the Luberon). In the late 1950s, he captured fleeting forms through the windows of a car, and they gave him inspiration for his hanging sculptures, which he calls “watercolour-sculptures”.
Invited by the CAIRN Art Centre and Réserve Géologique de Haute Provence in 1999, Curt Asker created Triangle. Two works remain of this stay in Digne, installed in Saint-Benoît Park and the Musée Gassendi.
