For three decades, Karen H. Salup has been intriguing audiences across the country with her paintings.  Her artwork has been featured in several galleries and exhibits through Florida and New York, including SOLO exhibits at Viridian and Jain Marunouchi Galleries.  Karen tells The Rickie Report, “As a painting evolves I am composing intuitive images that references lean to nature. There is a vocabulary that I have developed, consisting of visual poetry”.

 

“Birthday Celebration” by Karen H Salup

 

 

 

Using acrylic, watercolor, and pastels on canvas and paper, Karen creates a world that vibrates with bold colors and bright light paired with brushstrokes that evoke a strong sense of movement and energy.  Her paintings begin with a theme of nature, but invariably evolve into an imaginative creation that invites interpretation from the audience.  Karen’s work is influenced from Impressionism  to Deconstructionism  to Abstract  Expressionism.

 

 

 

“Swirl” by Karen H. Salup

 

She explains, “These terms such as markmaking, brushstrokes and gestures where known as idiosyncratic visual poetry by the Abstract Expressionist movement creating gestures that bring to the viewer; Forms, Texture, Color and Light”.

 

 

“Summer Fling” by Karen H. Salup

 

 

“My work is very much like a process. I find image secondary to the art making. Although abstract in nature, there is an underlying visual order that gradually seems to emerge. Working intuitively, I enter a realm of the unknown where there is more of a calling than any real choice. I seem to be forever altering and adjusting the core of the painting and some invisible reality that appears”.

 

 

“This self-imposed repetitive process as I build, erase and paint layers becomes a definite chaos through which the work evolves and it seems to return repeatedly to its beginning. With each revival to the surface, there are the mark markings, forms, subtleties and sensitivities that appear in my work”.   Karen is an active member of the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA), Women in The Visual Arts (WITVA) and the Palm Beach Watercolor Society.

Karen H. Salup Is Featured Artist At Palm Beach Cultural Council Gallery February 16 – May 12, 2018

As an abstract expressionist, Karen H. Salup concentrates on the action of painting as opposed to a recognizable concrete image. The brushstrokes act like vibrations of color making her paintings come alive!  The public is invited to her exhibit, “Art & Decor” at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, opening February 16 through May 12.  She concentrates on canvas and works on paper, “avoiding the pretty.” Karen invites the viewer to experience what seems to be her private interpretation of her landscapes, with rhythm and imagery.  Salup has exhibited nationally and has won multiple awards for her work. The Rickie Report shares some sneak peeks and details here.

For three decades, Karen H. Salup has been intriguing audiences across the country with her paintings. A native New Yorker, Karen’s work has been featured in several galleries and exhibits throughout Florida and New York with solo shows at Viridian and Jain Marunouchi Galleries.  Using acrylic, watercolor, and pastels on canvas and paper, Karen H.

“Dancing Waters” by Karen H Salup

 

 

Karen tells us, “As with artists of every era, I suppose I’m searching for a kind of underlying unity and order that takes into account the materials on hand, a method, and a fairly clear personal point of view. Form, space, content and especially the qualities of colour and light. As a painting evolves, I find myself making changes which when made, then reveal and suggest other possible directions. Thus, there is an ongoing shift of centers of interest, if not in the basic structure itself.  The works vibrate with color, come alive with brushstrokes, images fight to appear and references to nature seem apparent. The freshness of the gesture allows the viewer to feel the painting develop as though we were making the decisions to add, subtract, change colors and play with the space.”

 

“My Picasso” by Karen H Salup

 

 

Karen studied at CW Post and the School of Visual Arts in New York City.  Her mentor, artist and sculptor, Jerry Okimoto, motivated her to become an “action painter”.  Her main artistic influences are Jackson Pollock and Willem de Koonig.  Karen is extremely active in the art community, serving on the Board of Women In The Visual Arts (WITVA), membership in the Palm Beach Watercolor Society, National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) and the Boca Raton Artist Guild Association.
