FROM THE VANISHING POINT (Two Lines go their separate ways) by Karin Kain


Peach Faced Love Birds by Karen Kain

Karen Kain spends half the year in Australia and the other half in Richmond, Virginia. "Kain paints with brushes in both hands at once, calligraphing in two deceptively simple lines, the human figure at its most vulnerable and most abstract, aiding and abetting those most ancient of materials-- Asian brushes and ink-- in conjunction with those most modern-- the computer and digital printer. In this new print series, we meet at the vanishing point; where, if we look in every direction, we see that all lines must depart each other. We find ourselves inside the work looking out at the self, back at the maker, towards post-vanishment,or sideways at the edges, to the question of love and coupling and our ultimate aloneness."
