Karen Trotter – “To Reveal and Make New”

IMG_2195“Textures of tide and time fascinate me. Rust, splintered boats and batteries, driftwood, beaks, bones, bottle tops, feathers, glass, rope and seaweed find their place in my works, re-crafted with mosaic, abstracted in paint. My art results from the compulsion to comb beaches; to search, to reveal and to make new”
