DS Studio Visit: Karen Ann Myers

“A saturated, lively palette and playful assemblage of patterns produces an ironic, chaotic space to show her neglected subjects. She seeks to comprehend the poses that appear unnatural as they attempt to be pretty when subjected to someone’s gaze, whether a lover or photographer. Thinking of You investigates this idea, as it plays on the viewer as onlooker. She embraces the bird’s eye perspective and other methods of eliminating depth. Karen’s patterns are often well rendered while she experiments with how three-dimensional her figures should be. In Thinking of You, she points out that the body is fairly flat, while the breasts are more rendered.”
