Karen Olson


Fine Art and Conceptual Photography

I As an artist working in photography, I am interested in portraying human emotion with all its intricacies and complexities. I illustrate the language of the subconscious and use the medium to dig deep into the psyche. It is our strength to express the deepest part of ourselves,
 to validate and honor the pain we carry in our hearts.
Gently walking camera in hand through the forests near my home directly connects me to the natural world in an intimate and personal way. I feel comforted and companioned bathed in the rich, healing atmosphere. Back in the studio, the act of constructing, deconstructing, and constructing further imitates the natural cycles of growth and decay. Diverse artistic elements are digitally captured, blended, and intertwined.
Natural fibers, papers, and photographs are formed and sculpted adding weight and texture.
This process helps me make sense of the world, it pulls me in and grounds me.

Collaborations are welcome and encouraged. I  live in Midcoast Maine and am available for fine art and conceptual photo shoots.
