A LOOK INSIDE KAREN HAWKINS ART

“Much of my current body of work explores ‘the book’ , a rapidly declining composition, and how, or whether, it remains purposeful in a digital age. As an artist my goal is to transform how a book functions outside of its uncompromising structure and reinterpret it as new and visually meaningful.”

 

 

THE PINK BOW PROJECT

For the past year, as the national discourse opened up conversations about sexual violence, artist Karen Hawkins found herself drawn deeper into her personal burden as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. These developing national conversations served as a catalyst in shifting her artistic direction toward this new and relevant work.
