About the exhibition of Karen Lamassonne


Karen Lamassonne is an artist who makes paintings, drawings, collages, and videos.

She often focuses on domestic spaces such as bathrooms and bedrooms.

With her work she thinks about self-portraiture and representation, especially from her perspective as a woman.

Lamassonne has also worked on films and traveled around the world.

Films have been inspiring to her as an artist. 

Her most recent works involve reworking old documents, letters, and postcards to create collages that explore the nature of change over time.
