KAREN YURKOVICH: CULTURAL BIODIVERSITY PROJECTS
NOVEMBER 7 – DECEMBER 10, 2013
Last week in SACI’s Maidoff Gallery, an exhibition of new paintings by SACI MFA Program Director Karen Yurkovich opened. In a series of works, Karen explains how this project is currently developing and spoke about her painting techniques. Cultural Biodiversity Projects is composed of 3 groups: the Herbarium Project, Garden Culture, and Forgotten Fruit. To read more about Karen and her work in this exhibition, click here. Below are some photos from the opening night.
Karen Yurkovich is a Canadian artist working between Vancouver, Canada and Florence, Italy. An integral part of her artistic practice concerns the relationship between culture and nature. Her work addresses the many ways in which nature and humanity have co-existed and co-evolved and her paintings integrate and interpret scientific categories and modes of representation. Beautiful, iconic and fragile, they are hybrids, where incongruent elements exist together and relationships become textual, as hinted at in the titles.
