Artist’s statement 



A series of paintings by Karen Phillips Curran

 Water….The stuff of life.

These paintings are a continuation

of my lifelong  study of water.

Here,  I am intent upon relatively calm water’s surface. Surface reflections combine with shaded areas to reveal what is below Deep, rich colours complement gentle rhythmic undulations. Contrast creates heat.  Contemplation and simplification resolve

the mystery of the surface.

A sense of calm pervades.
