Words, text sequences and mantras are the foundation of my work. Artist Karen Gutfreund creates large scale, mixed media works incorporating acrylic, resin, and pop culture imagery. Most of her work is activist and with the current administration there is no end to new content, unfortunately.

My work combines still life, landscape and figure painting into these surreal narrative vignettes. I pull my subject matter from my neighborhood walks and my hikes, from found objects and from the people around me.
