Artwork Description

Oil Paint on canvas, ready to hang

Signed on the front

This new series of lively abstract works, with an element of naivety are inspired by our local beach on the Gold Coast in Australia.

The idea evolved from the Artists first series of larger scale abstract impressionist works, all with broken edges and loose brush strokes, out of focus layers, which are also

featured here on her Blue Thumb Art portfolio. These works explored the freedom of expression and emotion experienced when out there in this natural habitat, playing amongst

the elements and the tides, capturing the play between the sand, sea, and sunlight.

This new series of work titled "Line in the Sand" is indeed the antithesis of that original body of work. The contrast is quite profound as these works explore the emotional

extremes of submission or tolerance, against resilience and tenacity. The artist or viewer eventually reaching a firm but positive resolve with their own "line in the sand"

and a limit to their tolerance of a situation.

These works are indeed a metaphor for having reached your line in the sand.

Karen is an extremely diverse artist in terms of constantly exploring new compositions, her style is however clearly evident in each work however diverse the narrative is.

"I challenge myself to explore my limits, being diverse in the Art I produce means I constantly discover new things about myself and my craft. I feel confident in the use of

color, and prefer not to conform to a standard of producing the same compositions for an extended period of time. I feel that my art reflects the diversity of life, it's always

challenging and some times testing, but approached positively can be a lively and entertaining life too, my aim is to reflect this in my work."
