This lively abstract is entitled Anicca which, in Buddhism, refers to the transience and inconstant nature of our lives. Its bold colors melt away throughout the piece.  Depth has been created in this piece by repeated layering of opaque, translucent and transparent pigments. The painting was created in acrylic on Arches archival watercolor paper

Getting to Know Karen

Karen’s abstract paintings are best described as an exploration in color. Often monochromatic, her work is a meditative and serene improvisation in the movement and depth of paint. Whether executed in earthy shades or vibrant tones, each painting evokes a different mood for the viewer’s contemplation. Karen’s body of work gives a gentle nod to the Color Field movement of the 20th Century, grounding her portfolio solidly within the evolving story of contemporary art.
