WORK WITH

Karen Weihs

Karen Weihs

   

Oil Master | Palette Knife

Using mostly palette knives and particular brushes, Weihs applies pigment in lush impasto layers interspersed with thin glazes that enrich colors and result in canvases that glow with mysterious light and form. The vague forms and evocative spaces in her paintings become magnets that draw audiences into the mystery of creation by way of human imagination.

Her works radiate an otherworldly ambience of shimmering colors and swirling shapes. Weihs galvanizes her audience’s natural curiosity with compositions that border between abstraction and landscape. She alludes to the familiar without telling the story. Her abstracted representational subject matter is deliberately simplified to capture the “idea” or essence of a place, not the reality of it. Her abstracts show her skill at mark making and texture.
