24 x 24 inches mixed media, acrylics on gallery wrap canvas--unframed
Karen Powell is a fine artist who has come full circle with her ‘visual’ voice. Trained as a fine artist with a BA from Fisk University before going onto the University of Chicago for graduate study. After an extensive career as a graphic designer and art director in Boston, MA she has returned to her passion...the fine arts. Powell has exhibited in diverse galleries throughout the country.
My work is a constant search to best interpret the ideas I have about things that motivate me to create.
Growing up in an urban environment has inspired me to reflect on childhood experiences in my work. I create mixed-media collage paintings using vintage photographs, in a very contemporary way. This work has a very personal and intimate appeal and is well received by diverse audiences.
My abstract series represents my creative ‘alter ego’. It is a departure from the traditional mixed media work but ironically, these abstracts have always existed in my work as a foundation for my mixed media images. My abstracts now stand alone vibrating and swirling in a very deliberate way.
As an artist I continue to challenge my edge. I enjoy exploring multiple genres. Nothing thrills me more than when one of my pieces speaks to someone in a very personal and profound way...that's what challenges and inspires me to continue this journey.
