Drawings by Karen Summers
Karen harnesses the motion of dance and movement by exploring the connection between ones innermost feelings and the subsequent projected image. Disclosing ones existence and unique identity of self with every gesture one makes, a tilt of the head, fold of the arm, even the most fleeting of glances are distilled; creating a vital and conscious force that challenges us to connect with one another.
Karen works a broad range of media pastels, charcoal, inks, oils, acrylics and often on hand prepared papers. Some of the pieces are worked with simple line drawing whilst others are layered with colour and texture.
She has exhibited with the Pastel Society at the Mall Galleries and SW1 Gallery in London, Pure Arts Group in Battle and various galleries in Kent and the South East of England.
