Abstract realist painter, Karen Haynes, juxtaposes hard and soft elements in an explosion of color, texture and form.
I’d rather paint...and I love inconsistency. A little tension taking place where it’s not expected, as in a floral still life.
As a younger painter I always swore I would NEVER paint still life...and we all know how that kind of promise works out. Having been asked to participate inanexhibit themed as “Still Life”, I groan. What to do...something not involving vases. And so it began in a tiny way, 10 inches by 10 inches. Hard and soft, seemingly strong and deceptively fragile, and so on, it has become an ongoing exploration of combinations. My long love affair with abstraction is now playing a moredistinct role, moving the representational images into a dance at the edge of abstractexpressionism.
