Karen Black on Art Guide Australia

20 Jul 2023

Karen Black interviewed by Art Guide Australia’s Karina Dias on her new works, currently on view at Ngungunggula and Monash University Museum of Art.

“I like to use costume and posture to elevate the feeling of the figures or faces in my paintings. I mix up the body with other ideas and feelings, and more recently I have also undressed the body as I am exploring yoga poses,” explains the artist in the interview.

View ‘Once More with Feeling’ at Ngununggula until 6 August and ‘Thin Skin’ at MUMA until 23 September.
