Twisted Beautiful

Dates:8 August 2013 to 21 August 2013

From 8th to 21st August 2013

Central to Karen’s exhibition this year is “Twisted Beautiful” a collection of canvasses and Bell Jars featuring knitted and twisted wire work all handmade by the artist. The work is inspired by iconography from the East. Two pieces also feature snakeskin, a material the artist especially likes to work with.

Along with this is a collection called “Small World”. Small canvasses inspired by Art Deco and the iconic railway posters of that era.

Also displayed a collection of Faces worked in oil pastel and oil, using rags to blend the medium.

This is the second year Karen has exhibited in Margate and she is excited to meet up with those she met last year and make new friends.

Also exhibiting are Karen’s husband Ian and her daughter Frances O’Connell.

Ian is exhibiting a collection of steel sculptures under the title “Steel Garden”

Frances is showing a range of handmade items for children and the home under the label “E is for Effy”

This year “it’s a family affair!” Come along and see us.
