Going back to the time of cave painting we see that these early visual artists not only recorded their lives and surroundings, but used art to express themselves. The depiction of animals in symbolic and powerful ways and the urge to create these images with the best tools at hand is a line stretching from these unnamed cave painters to Karen Knorr. Playfully combining technologies and genres, Knorr mixes digital and analogue, architectural and nature photography. Her photographs satisfy many of the requisites of traditional photography which address the surface appearance of a species or place, but then move to a paradoxical space where they begin to question the overt assumptions of the picture’s content. The boundaries of the real are thus challenged both by this hybrid process and also by the incongruity of the scenes. If we define human experience by the culture we create, Knorr’s animals gift us with a unique expression of what it means to be human, and to see optimism and beauty in art. Original and resonant the “India Song” pictures have received worldwide recognition. Knorr’s work was given a solo exhibition at Tate Britain in 2015, and four of the India pictures were exhibited at The Getty Museum in 2019.
