Exhale Karen Wykerd Solo Exhibition features the artist displaying a selection of paintings on canvas, wooden blocks and hand-marbled paper with subject matter of nature’s environment.
Karen Wykerd explores alternative surroundings compared to the usual urban scapes. The multimedia artist leaves the busy streets of the city behind to explore the abundance of nature around Cape Town.
The process is an important part of the body of work, with elements of chance at play, acknowledging the necessity of exploring the unfamiliar in order to gain insight.
Wykerd captures calm spaces, where viewers can a moment to exhale and let out the stresses from daily living in the Exhale.
The collection of works utilises Wykerd’s recognisable translucent washes of colour, around figures swimming, strolling, floating to create scenes of immersion in nature.
The indistinct backgrounds and tranquil colour palette combine to give viewers moments of rest where people can reflect and be reacquainted with nature.
