This exhibit is about the blinding darkness we experience when everything in our lives seems to be going wrong and the turning point at which we discover the light at the end of the tunnel. As with anything in life, this darkness is only temporary, yet during the moment of darkness it is almost impossible to maintain perspective and see light. However, after darkness there is always light and we are reminded of this every morning.
Karen Santos plays with the idea of contracts between light and dark, yin and yang, chiaroscuro and tenebrism by utilizing a stark colour palate and mixed media. Her aim is to begin a conversation with the viewer about their emotions and life experiences, while remaining true to the message of her show, that everything has the capability to illuminate darkness
Karen Santos is a Mexican artist with a BFA from UBC and a BA in Opera and Performance at the Vancouver Academy of Music. Given her background, Karen’s work is inspired by the relationship between art, music and psychology. Working often with mixed media, she creates abstract expressionist portraits of affects. www.karen-santos.com
Created in partnership with the City of White Rock and Semiahmoo Arts, the Art on Display program ensures art is visible and accessible to the community.
