Karin Davie
Karin Davie is a leading artist in the current wave of painting practices transforming the legacy of high modernism to capture the dynamics of contemporary life. Known for her exuberant curvilinear abstractions and undulating “stripes” of hiding and revealing surfaces - Davie expands the notion of what was once described as the “self” in painting. Davie’s work highlights the performance aspect of painting. Her emphasis on seemingly long unbroken brushstrokes mimics her processes evoking a dynamic study of the body, stamina, and memory. Davie’s work is included in the permanent collections of museums including the Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada; the Seattle Art Museum, Washington; the Albright Knox Art Gallery, New York and the Kunstverein in Hamburg, Germany among others.
