Having been an avid cyclist for most of her life, Karen uses her bicycle as a regular mode of transportation. This has the benefit of allowing her to interact with her passing surroundings on an intimate level. With nothing to distort her view, the perspective from the seat of her bicycle is unencumbered and filled with a youthful exuberance. Karen’s rides have provided countless moments of inspiration over the decades, and recently her bicycle itself has become a catalyst for a body of work. These new pieces, which include mixed media and installation art, explore the dichotomy between contemporary man’s pace of living and the bike’s connection with a calmer way of interacting with the world.
