Karen Lorenz – Artist

I work across platforms from drawing to painting, artist books and animation (often embedded in objects or as part of an installation) to 3-dimensional works that explore the idea of surfacing realities.

In the past year, I created interactive sound installations using bird songs, musical notes, or generative music.

I am interested in our human predisposition to animism, and the way in which our surrounding, indeed any phenomenon might project their own ideas and demands upon us. The work mimics the notion of ‘inner life’ and having a voice that might inform us in a non-visual way.
