AboutCanal is delighted to present Karen Seapker's first solo exhibition in the UK.
Karen Seapker's paintings attempt to capture time and movement through the use of dynamic colour and brush strokes. Her interest lies in the place where abstraction meets representation.
Windswept landscapes and waves that swirl across the surface of the paintings create voids and vortices suggesting the impermanence of time and memory. Mysterious figures appear to disintegrate, evoking a haunting cinematic denouement.
Time and experience are warped in Seapker's bold gestural mark making, and even solid elements have an ephemeral and distorted quality. Through the slippage created by the artist's deft use of colour and monochrome, Seapker's visual language suggests the unsettling distance between memory and fact.
