Karen Stein Art
I encompass both acrylic abstract compositions and mixed mediumcollages as my preferred expression. My intention is to emphasize vibrant rich colors, bold brush strokes, line development and layers upon layers of textures Each canvas has its own personality developing visual storytelling, movement, and energy.
I enjoy creating and pull ideas stimulated by my past in the fashion industry form, patterns, shapes, balance of colors, design etc. Creativity is play It is a spontaneous freeing adventure. I have learned to paint without expectations. No preconceived images in my mind. I start with a large blank canvas of nothingness, then play, then add, then take away, then add some more and then finally SEE.......My process has been resolved after applying the use of many tools, mark making, sanding, collage pieces added, or not, glazing, testing, and plain exploring sometimes taking risks.
I hope to convey my love for art by stimulating emotional response from the viewer, be it feelings of quiet or intensity. My non representational finished pieces have been welcomed into many private homes. I am grateful that my talents are appreciated.
