Karen Muntean

"I love colour and structure, whether in earlier representational paintings or more recent abstract ones. To quote researcher Daphna Shohamy, ".....abstract art shifts our cognitive state away from concrete details and towards abstract ideas. It forces us to explore within ourselves..."."

Summer Energia - Acrylic on canvas 24 x 24 in.

"I started out my working life in the USA and in Canada as a graphic designer but after moving to a rural area I started painting more. I did watercolors initially, then switched to acrylic paintings. Along the way, I've also done some illustration, etching, linoprinting, and monoprinting. I made work in true encaustic for ten years. I've had solo shows in public and private galleries and participated in many group shows. Although I'm not a landscape painter I am inspired by beautiful landscape/cityscape. I draw inspiration from art from the past in galleries on my travels and from other artists working today."
