Animal Rhapsody

13 May – 3 June 2023

Animals have surrounded me from an early age as I was raised in a family which constantly had pets as companions. I sculpt animals in a wide range of motions capturing the emotions and gestures they display as if they were humans

I am deeply influenced by the 6th century Chinese Tang dynasty using the bright, vibrant colours of the funerary tomb animal lead glazes and reinterpreting Western cultural animal fables

The lead glazes bring life to the animal sculptures I create, with bright happy, shiny colours which pool and merge, enhanced by flower and animal motifs. My works are drawn from my Chinese Australian heritage and I aim to bring enjoyment and beauty to the viewer

While travelling through Europe after having completed a degree in business studies, Karen realised she needed to study art. She then completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts in ceramics at the National Art School, Sydney in 2005 and was invited to exhibit with the Robin Gibson Gallery where she continues to exhibit regularly. A number of these exhibitions were in conjunction with the City of Sydney’s Chinese New Year Festival
