Silence Lifted, mixed media on canvas works by Karen Santos
Karen Santos is a Vancouver-based painter whose work explores the symbiotic relationship between affects and art. Karen’s most recent collection Silence Lifted is a reflection on a vow of silence that Karen took in order for her operatic career to progress—a loss of the language that became quintessential to her personal expression. During the course of this vow, Santos turned to the canvas in order to satisfy her compulsion to articulate affects. Through this diversion of expression, a new language was given life as beautiful abstractions.
