Karen Hochman Brown
TAG Gallery July 7 – July 31, 2021
In Passing Through, Karen Hochman Brown uses her digital photographs of nature as springboards to fantastical landscapes full of magnified focus, distortion and symmetry. In addition to digital prints, the show includes mixed media works and animations.
The works are the result of a winter spent on the island of Kauai during the pandemic. The longer the pandemic wore on, the more normal planes of reality twisted and up-ended themselves. The show consists of several surreal seascapes accented by floral elements. The surreal scenes pay homage to Dali and Magritte. The inclusion of small lightbox mixed-media pieces are an extension of the “In The Bubble” series she produced last year inspired by Mary Corse: A Survey in Light.
