Description

Karen Dyer
Painting solely in oil and with a primary focus on still life, Karen works to imbue her chosen subjects with a ‘soul’ or spiritual energy despite being considered inanimate objects. Inspiration is drawn from a strong interest in the spiritual aspect of Animism and by recent visits to Asia which provided a glimpse into the world of Shinto and Buddhist beliefs.
Portraiture is also an area which interests Karen. When creating a work, an element of distortion is employed (to varying degrees of the surreal) to accentuate the emotion/spirit emanating from sitter and perceived by the
artist.
Karen lives and works in the vibrant inner city suburb of West End,
Queensland.
