Brooklyn, NY – 440 Gallery is delighted to re-open the gallery to the public on September 9th. To celebrate, we are proud to present Event Horizon, a solo show of original works by Karen Gibbons.
This show’s title is an astronomy term referring to the edge of a black hole. It describes a boundary from which nothing can escape. Karen Gibbons’ artwork is an invitation to reflect on our own “Event Horizon”.
If Karen Gibbons’ recent work could be boiled down to a single theme, it might be “transformation”. In every piece many images merge and emerge, bringing up myriad associations. Color, line, and composition lend coherence and integration as the viewer is swept up in a sumptuous saga alluding to emotions, cycles, and rebirth.
The dreamlike abstractions she creates are crafted out of collage, paint, and drawing materials mounted on boards and found objects. The works are made up of grouped components that offer the potential for re-arrangement. In a “choose your own adventure” manner, Gibbons’ art gracefully navigates the concept of change. With optimism and spirit, the work suggests that the viewer might also look at things from many different perspectives.
Karen Gibbons is a mixed media artist, she lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Gibbons is also a mother, author, yogi and therapist. She has an MFA from Hunter College and has shown her work consistently in New York City and beyond.
