Karen Ives is an innovative sculptor, creating small or large abstract forms that remind us of pre-historic creatures or parts of nature as seen through a microscope. Her sculptures are organic in form and obsessive in surface texture. Ives layers paint and patterns on wood to create whimsical and playful constructions. She uses mostly found wood and explores social situations, routine, pattern and color. In her work, Ives creates anawkward tension between something of beauty and that of homeliness.
