New Paintings by Karen Cass are now on view at Harvard University’s The Three Columns Gallery; Mather House, 10 Cowperthwait Street in Cambridge.
I met Karen at the gallery on Wednesday and was so pleased and impressed by the work. The show is called Enchanted Gardens. Much of the work is inspired by tropical rainforests Karen saw while on vacation a couple of years ago. The paintings are layered both physically in paint, as well as in imagery. I felt as if I was in a thicket looking both through the natural world as well as through the layers of associations that windows, birds and vegetation bring to mind.
If you can get there, the show is only up till April 25th, I strongly recommend it.
