Karen Black Biography

Drawing on historical and literary motifs of tragedy, isolation and loss, Karen Black's paintings hover between figurations and painterly gesture. Infused with its often dystopian subject, the painted canvas becomes politicised with events and incidents that subvert their material status. The visceral application of paint is equally evocative of the mythology and symbolism Black utilises.
