About

tem Description Karen Margolis Toxic Desire Watercolor, gouache,graphite, thread on Abaca paper 14x 11 inches 2006 This work is framed Karen Margolis is an U.S. artist who lives and works in New York. Obsessively crafted circles are the central motif to her work. The circle, sacred to many, is riddled with symbolic meaning. In Native American tradition, the medicine wheel is a symbol of life, perfection, and infinites. In Chinese cosmology, the circle is noted as the most perfect geometric shape and, accordingly, represents the heavens above the square earth. It is a sacred symbol in the Zen Buddhism, which embodies the infinity and perfection. The circle is also a molecule or a neurotransmitter which brings science and spirituality together. Karen's works explore the universality of macro/micro patterns and move in the positive and negative space, in a fight between demolition and development. Her art-making involving two distinctly opposing procedures: holes in the material and/or construction of compositions circle-based. After receiving BS in Psychology from Colorado State University, Margolis studied art at Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts. Her works are exhibited internationally in museums and institutions, and have received numerous awards.
