About Karen

  The base of my work is to show pure essence of human being. I look at the influences that people undergo in their life the same way as I look at a theaterplay. I want to show this play. My work does not consist of static images, but shows an active process. My figures are in the middle of a scene that will change their life. You see the moment when they falter; the moment that every firm idea or thought, suddenly looks different; the moment of wonder. That is the moment human being shows its true nature. The figures are theatrical, compelling and vulnerable as a child.
