Karima Klasen

My painting confronts space and time in the broader sense. I conceive the physical space as canvas and painterly ground. Geometric lines and areas are placed in relation to the particular parameters of each site, individual elements of  spaces are accentuated with adhesive tape, paper and acrylic paint, so that ultimately spaces within spaces emerge.
It is those uncontrollable interdepencies, between situational constellations and artistic intervention that make visible new and unexpected meanings and perceptual relations.
The interplay between color, light, materials and location is in dialogue with the pre-established urban and local circumstances.
My artistic process is open-ended. The reference to the respectively different situational conditions, enables the repetetive creation of new work that can never be entirely predetermined.
