Karen Marston
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Williamsburg

Media:Painting;


ARTIST STATEMENT: The near simultaneous explosions of the oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico and the volcano in Iceland in 2010 triggered my interest in disasters. These images became an external manifestation of a certain post 9/11 zeitgeist, part of a growing litany of frightening catastrophes consuming the world around us. My most recent paintings in this exploration focus on tornadoes, forest fires, and hurricane waves. Blurring the line between natural and manmade disasters, our influence on our climate has enlarged these phenomena beyond their natural proportions. I am mesmerized by the power of elemental threats like fire and storm, bigger and more frightening than ever, amplified rather than tamed by modernity.
