“At it’s core, my work is about organic forms and their relationships. I reference the intricate and dynamic nature of life – its small parts, interconnections, diversity, rhythms, cycles, and energy. Themes of repetition and novelty, features of the biological world, are an undercurrent in all of my art.

A critical part of my creative process is arrangement and assembly. Decisions about placement, attachment and construction are endlessly fascinating. As in the web of life, where organization is constantly in flux, I feel compelled to put diverse and evolving elements in order.

The relief sculptures and collages are made with a variety of cut papers, acrylic and thin plywood. Plants, microscopic life, zoology, and human anatomy inspire the shapes and images I incorporate into the collages and reliefs.”  – Karen Steen
