About

The street, urban life and associated undercurrent subjects are focused and commemorated by the paintings of Karen Farmer. Her work does not fit with comfortable ideas instead the deviations and unpopular and overlooked are unearthed in a new way. K.A.R.E.N. an acronym for ‘Keeping Art Relevant Even Now’ has encompassed fine art training with the sensibility of the street. Seeking to annoy the authorities of culture, while commemorating those frowned upon elements of society that are seen as distasteful, Karen seeks to look at what we normally dismissed as unworthy, and not accepted in society… everything counts. Represented by Fine art galleries in Sydney and Melbourne, and internationally exhibited, Karen has a client base that ranges from art collectors to graffiti writers in an attempt to make art accessible across boundaries. With work ranging from murals to delicate drawings, photography to sculpture made from rubbish found in the street, Karen seeks to enjoy the “thorns not the roses” in a ploy to disengage the popular concepts of the ideal led by media influence.
