Please join us for "No Should Be As Friendly As Yes", an intriguing exhibition of recent paintings by Bay Area artist, Karen Barbour. Karen is a prolific painter and a devoted keeper of sketchbooks filled with the thoughts, observations and drawings she utilizes for reference. Her process leads her to work on many pieces simultaneously, visiting them and revisiting them as they call to her. She is inspired by ongoing dreams and memories, both old and new, and the recollections play out on the paper and canvases like a narrative of her subconscious. The imagery is a surrealist mix of figures and abstractions, fluidly rendered with skillful combinations of gouache, ink, oil and collage.

Karen received her MFA from the SFAI and worked for many years as a successful illustrator in NYC. Her work has been shown in galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Milan, and other cities.
