Karpowicz works in the heaviest and lightest of materials. His interest in precision, balance, and fine craftsmanship underpins work as massive as “Elizabeth’s Psyche” and as light as the “Cocoons”. “Elizabeth’s Psyche” plays highly finished surfaces against rough materials for a pleasing tension. The “Cocoons” are illusions—they look like bronze, caught halfway between pure geometry and mutating biology. In truth, they are made of cloth stretched over a wooden frame. The cloth is coated in metalized pigment that makes the forms look quite massive.

Karpowicz’s work revolves around his ability to create effects through refined material knowledge. This knowledge has been intensified by his daily life with a prosthetic leg, a result of a traffic accident. Karpowicz has said that dealing with the meticulous requirements of a prosthetic has heightened his appreciation for exquisite and intelligent design.
