Interior Room — Photography Sculpture by Kare Olson

 



Interior Room 

From the WILDLIGHT Project by Karen Olson

Pigment print on Kozo paper, mulberry paper, and natural fibers.

Available as one of a kind – $125.

"I had a visceral need to make something with my hands. Touch has been an important aspect of forest bathing and I wanted to bring it home, as it were. Spending extended time behind the screen and having touch censored for so long contributed to the need. The act of constructing, deconstructing, and constructing further connected me to the natural cycles of growth and decay. It pulled me in and grounded me. I loved it so much I decided to make it an integral part of my practice." – Karen Olson

WILDHEART — Photography by Karen Olson at Sweethaven Gallery

 




Karen Olson is a photography-based artist working at the intersection of human emotion and the natural world. She uses the medium to illustrate the language of the subconscious and dig deep into the psyche. Karen employs diverse materials and methods of construction to create her ethereal imagery and sculpture.

Recently interviewed for her project Wildlight by the Maine Museum of Photographic Arts, her sculptural photography has gained attention and press. Several of her images from an additional project, Between Two Worlds, were chosen for the show Behind the Lens-Women in Photography at the Rhode Island Center for Photography. The Griffin Museum of Photography in Boston featured the project in a virtual gallery show, her book with the same title was included in the Davis-Orton/Griffin Museum Photobook Show.

WILDHEART — August 5 – September 12.

MEET THE ARTIST: August 7th 1–6pm, light refreshments will be served.

Gallery hours — Wed. Thurs. Fri. & Sun. 12-5, Sat. 10-5.⁣⁣

Lyrical Landscape II : Blue Dreaming — by Lisa Hoag

 



8x14 Archival pigment print

(Original - Wet ink on cotton rag)

"There is something so delicate and hopeful about this piece. I follow the curious ways of the ink, the water, the pigments; who gently meander, explore their newfound terrain. Gently touching my brush here, then there, to the wetted rag paper. I am the assistant on this day, to these elements in their moment of play with each other. Our collaboration together reveals this dance of lightness and joy, perhaps to our surprise. A remembrance that joy is the foundation of life, which we can help each other create."

As Light Is — by Lisa Hoag

 


Prints available in multiple sizes on cotton rag or canvas. (Original - acrylic on canvas).

"Though quite beautiful, we often overlook natural objects because of their small size. I enlarged this slightly weathered feather, found in my front yard, to a larger-than-human size. The relationship to the object becomes physical, sculptural, rather than purely visual, its power and mystery amplified. In this time of disruption, we often lose our selves, and forget how to simply be."

"In moments of solitude with nature, there is a quality of timeless intimacy with something sacred, conscious, quiet, larger than us; an inner and outer Presence that is a union of our Self, and our environment, our Home. Those moments restore us, and we remember who we are."
