A Spotlight Interview with Karen Kitchel . Karen Kitchel’s landscapes are definitely not traditional. Of her work Karen states: “I paint them with the traditional craftsmanship of the genre’s past, and a critical eye on the geography of the present.” She narrows her focus to a small patch of dried grasses or what you may always have considered just plain weeds. In isolation we see their architecture, we sense the brittleness of leaves, the wonderfully chaotic arrangement of stems and leaves. Karen earned her BA in Art at Kalamazoo College and MFA in painting at Claremont Graduate School. She exhibits throughout the country and is widely collected.
