From the withers to the flank a great shudder passes;
stones skipping across a tightly stretched lake.
A chill such as this is life itself.
The mystical dancer spirals in rounds within my soul
How she beckons me to leap directly into the great dawn.
Karen King gives wings to her painting. Ephemeral horses gallop spirited and angelic with wispy plumes giving the impression they are the mythical flying Pegasus. However, none of her horses actually have wings. Karen herself looks like a star being from the Pleiades.
Images are created by singing, splashing, and spraying lacquer and enamel paint from above. Part performance art and part "precise haphazardness".
She paints big. Really big! One canvas can be as large as 60×48. She offers both original painted masonite or giclee on canvas.
The message from this artist, "I have deliberately chosen to create art that is strong, positive, powerful, and uplifting. A famous 20th century philosopher once said, “A culture is only as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamed by artists”. Art is the language of the spiritual nature of mankind. Artists create the future and that future can be one that we would like to have, not just for ourselves but for future generations. The world is ready for this kind of positive creating. My goal is to contribute to the world by creating powerful uplifting art that communicates on the highest plane. My philosophy in life is “Be strong, be brave, be playful, be kind, and be productive. Hold your head high and make your dreams happen and help others achieve theirs. May the Force be with you! How can it not, you are the Force.
