Karen Phillips Curran Karen is a lifelong artist. Drawing and painting has always been her passion. Her contemplative river stone images look deeply into water and explore the play of sunlight on worn smooth, water-covered rocks.
“My watercolours are about time and that magic moment when something ordinary makes you catch your breath then to pause, to look. I tell the story of what is often passed by. Light is discovered by way of shadow. Decay is made beautiful by way of being noticed. Texture is featured alongside dancing shadows. Emotions are moved to be calmed.”
“My Polaroid Image and Emulsion transfers are versatile and very expressive. I use them extensively to illustrate ideas of elusive, but evocative scenarios. I love the intricate, vivid, malleable imagery this medium can produce. By combining the images extensively with watercolour and coloured pencil, I treat them as mixed media pieces”
Pagan goddesses populate her iconic, gilded acrylic canvasses. They invite us to look at their myths in new ways.
