About

“Karen Clark avails herself of an eclectic set of mediums and materials, including but not limited to painting, drawing, digital collage, and printmaking. These she deploys in all possible combinations in the service of pictorially hybrid compositions in which she freely samples stylistic languages from gestural abstraction to the surreal, naturalistic, ultra-modern, and romantic — inventively choreographing this gamut of choices into layered juxtapositions that are at once eerie and poetic, strange and familiar,” Art Critic Shana Nys Dambrot.
