I found this artist, Karen Ann Myers while visiting artistaday.com and was instantly drawn to the way she uses space in her paintings. I even find it a little reminiscent of photographer Julie Blackmon who I blogged about previously. For both artists the point of view is often taken from above as if you were looking down from a plane on to the land, but where Julie Blackmon is using family life as her subject matter, Myers is commenting more on how it is to be a woman in today’s society. In both instances I get the impression that the images are more about the space than the person/people in the space, something I find compelling and makes me want to know more about each scene.
