Karen Dow

Karen’s early influences stem from her Sundays spent at the Albright Knox Art Museum, where she would admire the giant color-field paintings of the 60s. Karen finds beauty in lived spaces, and uses modern architecture, home catalogs, and interior settings as sources of inspiration. By breaking down these scenes into their core components of line, color, and pattern, Karen unveils a new perspective—one that continually challenges the familiar and presents beauty through clarity of form. 

A glimpse inside Karen's studio.
I see the beauty in everyday life, but know that nothing is as it seems on the surface and when you break it down to its core, you begin to see a whole new world.
