Lion & Two White Crows

About

"Lion & Two White Crows" is an original acrylic painting on paper mounted on museum foamboard. It depicts a yellow lion and two white crows in front of a deep red background. There is also a musical instrument on a white towel hanging above, along with the title written. The artist, Karen Hoepting, signed the piece in the lower right. 16" x 16" art 25 3/8" x 25 3/8" frame Karen obtained her Honors Bachelor Degree of Fine Arts from University of Waterloo in 1997. Her studio work at the time was divided between working with drawing mediums on paper and with acrylics or oils on canvas. Today, she combines her media together working on both canvas and paper creating brilliant, whimsical abstract images that make reference to the animals she loves. The work of the German Expressionists and the Symbolists have always intrigued Karen. She has felt emotionally drawn to the vivid and powerful imagery of Kathie Kollwitz, Egon Shiele and Gustav Klimt. Like some of these artists, Karen speaks to the viewer through symbols and stylistic motifs. Animals have been recurring subjects in Karen’s work for several years. She grew up on a livestock farm and formed a strong attachment to animals. Today, Karen has two dogs and two cats, and is an Ontario Humane Society Volunteer: "Animals are definitely a passion for me. I feel compassion for all forms of life. Naturally my feeling about animals [have] transferred into my art." Her art is an exploration of animals’ spiritual and natural qualities and how these co-exist with industrial society. Through her primitive yet sophisticated style, she combines abstract elements together to create happy and lighthearted works.
