Karen creates and co-creates both contemplative and dynamic work incorporating sculpture, installation and performance, weaving together combinations of methods and materials. My process involves experimentation, investigation and improvisation around existential questions of what it is to be human in today's world, exploring the capabilities and capacities of herself, her materials and those she collaborates with.
As a British Anglo-Asian contemporary artist, Karen's work offers insights into the interconnectedness of mindful and creative processes, resulting in both physical and transcendent works that span Eastern and Western philosophies, melting the distinctions between traditional disciplines.
Karen's interdisciplinary practice uses drawing, painting, sculpture, interactive installation, sound, film, projection and performance, often incorporating more than one of these disciplines to create meaning. I enjoy both working on my own and in collaboration with others.
Karen created Neocartouche Arts in 2019 through which to showcase her work and run courses as she also enjoys teaching and sharing her knowledge and skills as part of her practice.
Following the lifting of Covid restrictions her courses & workshops are resuming at Ayres House Studios in Wallingford.
