Karen Prakhoff Rickman – Through a Different Lens
|We are inextricably linked with the environment and specific aspects of landscapes resonate with our memories and thoughts. My current art practice centres around the exploration of the monoprint and palimpsest landscape as evocation.
Monoprinting is ideally suited to this deliberate overwriting of images, with each layer altering the previous state, simultaneously creating and denying form. This process is integral to both the aesthetics and meaning of the work. It speaks of personal and collective memory; faint, forgotten or altered recollections.
My work is about the persistence and mutability of memory – a personal reflection on memory, time, loss and hope. The open nature of my work encourages the viewer to seek their own memories and meaning.
