Thank-you to Karen Kunc for giving a wonderful gallery talk, providing insight into the works of "An Eden."
Kunc's work has followed an evolutionary path, pushing beyond herself to reach a new fullness by becoming playful and loose. The one-of-a-kind works build from printmaking techniques, yet are transformed through mixed media additives. Karen states she was "splashing, painting, pouring, staining and adding hand coloring to respond to the ugliness and pull out resolutions to bring it back to an elegant stage."
Karen Kunc recently traveled to the Oregon College of Art and Craft in July 2010 as a Senior Artist-in-Residence.
Next stop for Karen Kunc: a travel research grant to Venice, Italy
