> DESCRIPTION

Using digital manipulation techniques, Karen Savage transforms domestic objects into arresting works of art that transcend the mundane nature of their original materials.  In ³Constellations,² she converts doilies into stellar bodies in an attempt to transport the commonplace, the insignificant, to the realm of the ethereal. In doing so, she notes the fleeting quality of each: just as constellations exist temporarily, passing into and out of being with startling yet predictable quickness, so does the human life.  Her work presents an exploration of temporality that extends far beyond the decorations themselves‹it encompasses the cosmos.
