Artscope feature article is out!

I just got a copy of Paula Melton’s  article about my artwork in Boston’s Artscope magazine.  It’s called  “Appliqued Science: Karen Kamenetzky at the Cellular Level”.

The two page layout (not available online) is beautiful with four large images. I thought it might be difficult/embarrassing to read another person’s take on my art but I’m very happy with the language Paula used. Here’s an excerpt:

The fiber art of Karen Kamenetzky is a physical manifestation of the deep  relationship between color and life…

Kamenetzky dyes and paints silks and cottons, then cuts and collages them into brilliant landscapes inspired by biological processes. As captured through electron microscopy…If you have seen reproductions of the pieces, their thick pendulous presence as they hang in the gallery will come as a surprise.

An entirely pleasant surprise. For it is their thickly stitched layers, and thus their resemblance to intricately layered networks of animal and plant tissue, that ultimately complete the metaphor and reveal how color becomes life.
