Opening Reception: Saturday, October 1st, 2011 6pm – 9pm

Artist Bio:

Karyn began oil painting in 2006, after leaving her touring band of 13 years, Crisis.  She has been obsessed with the idea of “inner demon/darkness” as a power source, and with facing it as a process of self-acceptance en route to enlightenment; the inner demon and its role as teacher and guide to empowerment via self-knowledge, forgiveness, and unity for a higher good.

Karyn sees light in dark places.

She has chosen to express, through her art, this dark side, the power within it, and the controversial beauty therein.  She uses archetypes in her paintings and drawings, whose power and beauty have universally been both admired and feared, and whose images have been molded into harmless, quiet, passive or evil symbols, despite their terrifying and benevolent truths: Angels, Witches, and Mythological Women.  Karyn also incorporates her first-hand experience with these beings as a Medium, Clairvoyant, and Seer.

The exhibition runs October 1st, 2011 – November 1st, 2011

Gallery Hours: Monday – Sunday 12pm – 8pm
