Karen Purple artist paints beautiful contemporary abstract paintings.
Karen Purple comments "Inspired by an interest in natural history and the work of both the biologist and the landscape historian, I make work that engages with the landscape and the organic materials within it. Daily connections are made with the countryside collecting images, natural materials, and objects that go on to inform my work in the studio. Collections of small-scale drawings are made, that act as an aide memoir for my paintings. The paintings, which are often intimate in size develop through an ongoing inquiry between the hierarchies that I set up. These will be concerned with accumulation and connection, of emphasis and articulation. I constantly challenge these relationships with much layering and erasing of oil paint and drawing into and on the surface of the canvas. The resulting work emerges from a mixture of recall and the imagined, of process and materiality."
