"My art explores the rich metaphorical stories I find in microscopic cellular imagery."

Karen Kamenetzky believes that all change happens on an infinitesimal level and results in the world we experience everyday. Kamenetzky creates a kind of invented biology, zooming in on that fundamental nature of things and bringing it into vision. She works loosely from sketches but each piece travels a route of evolution and change. Beginning with white cotton and silk, Kamenetzky adds vibrant saturated color with dye and paint. The fabric is then cut freehand and the entire piece constructed using layered raw edge appliqué. Machine and hand stitching add lines of light and shadow as well as color.
