Karin Batten – painter

KARIN BATTEN PHOTO OF SELF WEBSITE
The many different materials I use create complex and poetic works layered with meaning of open seas and land.
I play organic shapes against geometric patterns. Some forms are scraped and layered while others are fully present. I work spontaneously and intuitively.
Since I moved to New York City I have been fascinated by the scale of its buildings, reminiscent of mountains and deep valleys. The seemingly fragmented city merges into one cohesive unit, that needs the collective in order to continue to evolve, grow, and prosper. However, it is not until the many layers, textures, strokes and colors intertwine that the composition comes into focus and the true magnificence of New York City’s skyline and terrain is captured.
