Karen Karen Sculpture

Karen Karen is an artist working primarily with sculpture; producing studio-based artworks and exterior sited art.

Currently, a number of sculptures are being developed: the traditional processes of thatching, clay-modelling and casting have been investigated, in addition to building on past experience with woodwork, fabrication, assemblage and installation. To advance possibilities for outdoor work, Karen has more recently been studying welding and a second workshop is now set up and in use for metalwork nearby.

Her methodology combines instinctive, abstract and conceptual approaches, often incorporating additional layers referencing site or context. For more background information visit the about page.

With a small workshop currently at home, Karen has been using her garden as an extended studio for sculptural ‘sketching’ for installations and site-specific works. The studio and garden is open to visit by arrangement. Please visit the contact page to enquire for address and directions.
