ICELAND: PAINTING: KAREN PALSDOTTIR

Karen Pálsdóttir artist statement: “I create my paintings by dissecting my images into multiple digital layers, creating an accumulated image over time. The process always begins with a black silhouette of the portrait and finalizes with small white transparent marks. My subject is my surface and the process is a silent performance. The paintings I make are derived from the documentation of the silent performances I perform with my subjects. The layered paint on my subject’s face develops into a mask which represents the projected layered personal history of the subject. When my subject discards their painted mask, it represents a self supporting individual growth, a release of the self, a shedding of self-projections and a reclamation of the self.”
