Karen Hollingsworth is known for her unique light, airy Window Scapes. In the past the artist painted interior spaces, now she includes an open window that acts as a portal into the space beyond. Her large oil paintings often depict subject matter that is fairly minimal, chairs and ordinary interior settings, however what attracts many viewers is the mysticism evoked by the movement of the air and the ocean breeze through the curtains.
For Karen, a painting is about the feeling it evokes. Although there are no figures present in her Window Scapes, it is difficult to deny the implications of vacant chairs in such an empty space. She is interested in creating the “impression" of looking through a room and seeing the world outside.
