Independent Cluster, 2007. 11 3/4 x 11 3/4"
Introducing Karen Kimmel
The work immediately above and below are all pencil, marker, paper cut out on paper -- and some are multi-piece works.
Cluster, 2007 (Clementine). Set of two framed drawings, 27 x 24.5"
I like how the multi-piece works are framed and then hung inside an area of painted color. Anyone else try this at home? In case you are thinking about clustering a few framed pieces of art together for hanging - check out these

Cluster (blush & smoke), 2007. Set of four framed drawings, 40 x 21 1/4"
It is said she is influenced by traditional Japanese arts including Ikebana flower arranging -- I like how the work is sometimes a drawing AND a sculpture.
She is also becoming well-known for her "Social Sculptures" where she orchestrates interactive art-making experiences for diverse audiences, ranging from attendees at an art auction, to the artists at the Creative Growth Art Center.
Stencils with bases, 2007 (detail) – 6 x 6", 8 x 12", and 8 x 5"
Wall Stencil, 2007. Acrylic, wood, and paint, 12"
Make sure to take a look at Kimmel's site to get a better sense of the range of her work - it's one of those elegant flash sites that makes it tricky to snitch photos.
