Troels Wörsel was self-taught and in the 1970s, became interested in Pop art and conceptual art. Philosophical issues such as the relationship between space and time characterised his art. In the early 1980s, he contributed to the pioneer exhibition Rundschau Deutschland and Bildwechsel at West Berlin's Akademie der Künste. In 1995 Wörsel was awarded the Eckersberg Medal, and in 2002 he won Carnegie Art Award's first prize with three paintings all of which were executed on the reverse of the canvas."
