Karen Purpleā€™s paintings display an intimate and subtle approach to landscape painting where subject is mediated through memory. The surfaces of her work show a simmering yet substantial use of colour and with an application of paint that is both subtle and adventurous. Light, reflection, movement and touch are all elements that inhabit the surfaces and result in aesthetically enriched paintings.
