Event Details

Byrde the b is pleased to announce an exhibition of recent abstract paintings by Karen Pepper through November 27, 2021

Karen Pepper follows in a long tradition of American Abstract Expressionist painters from Cy Twombly, Joan Mitchell and Willem de Kooning where marks and gestures develop a complex and mysterious world crying out to be discovered. Her masterful use of color and texture speak with a strong voice and the results are sublime compositions that invite deep contemplation.

“As a painter, I have always enjoyed the use of color and movement on my canvases to create a composition that is visually exciting for the viewer. My process starts by selecting a bright color to cover the canvas and then make either long or short sweeping marks with oil pastel or pencil. I don’t always work on the canvas immediately after this preparation but prefer to live with the canvas over time to discover areas created by the marks that I would like to enhance. Once I start applying paint I like to scrape it away so that my original marks and color sneak out from the heavier top layer of oil paint. I also throw sand on the canvas for texture and sometimes enamel paint for its fluidity which creates the movement I try to capture.”
