Karen Ann Myers

Karen Ann Myers considers her work rooted in the concept of the self-portrait, even when not painting herself, she is making an artifact of her world. She often paints friends and family, people she “knows well enough to feel comfortable assigning a pattern to them,” but recently she has been examining the glossy printed images of women from popular sources. She investigates the figure alongside the materials that are clues to their identity. She sees her textiles as a means of camouflage for her subjects and attaining beauty as a way of hiding fear and isolation.
