Karen Klucowicz is a Canadian artist. Her concept-driven, figure-based, abstract works of art are focused on communication. Working in two series she explores the strength of individuals and in the second series talks about how that strength affects relationships.
“We all have inner strength that is not always readily apparent until we are challenged to negotiate a situation. My art focuses on that strength and how it affects our relationships.”
Figures and a neutrality to those figures, are essential to sharing Klucowicz’s concepts, stripping away notions of an individual or a culture to reveal and demonstrate their strength. Through colour, form and texture, she presents figures that neutralize bias in positions that express the idea, and then allows the act of painting to dictate the level of abstraction.
Drawn to exploring outside of a canvas, some of her work has been stripped of colour, formal or traditional structures of presentation, mixes media, grounds and offers unique art installations. This exploration combines her love of materials and her passion for painting. True to the series, the new pieces add dimension and depth to her artwork.
Karen presently has a studio in Hamilton, Ontario, painting and hosting art experiences for individuals and team building events. She firmly believes all should “Live the power of art.”©
