Karan Ouren: Connected
- September 19th - October 21st
- Reception & Artist Talk: Thursday, October 12th, 5-7pm
Karan has been an artist working in acrylics since 2007, when she began painting floral, landscape and seascape artwork. In 2012 Karan’s focus turned to abstract art. She has always loved the abstract art of various artists and was determined to learn more about the art form as well as how these beautiful pieces were created.
Karan began by using techniques she had learned from her previous works, (successes and failures), and found that abstract art was not an easy art form. She would need to research and learn how to let go and loosen up when painting.
She began reading books by various artist and watching abstract painting tutorials, by practicing what the teaching artist was sharing she began to apply those very techniques to her own style of painting.
In Karan’s love for painting she found a freedom in the creation of abstract art. Discovering so many types of acrylic paints, mediums and tools that could be used in a piece of art became exhilarating. Inspired is not even close to expressing how she feels when she is painting. It is the experience, the process of working on a piece of art that brings the most enjoyment.
The current works from 2013-2017 are the results of her determination and experimentation in learning and working in the abstract form.
