Karen Mahardy

Seattle, WA, USA


Karen is interested in a consciousness of place, not in the sense of an enclosed three-dimensional environment, but rather the simultaneous awareness of form and non-form deriving from an intensification of attention. In her work she explores distilling the energy of a specific place, experience, or relationship down to its minimalist essence. She does this by using the language of geometry and architecture and focusing on the point where the work is in a state of becoming and contains action, as if movement were frozen in time.
