Karen Larson-Voltz, M.F.A.
Karen’s artistic and design practice engages photography, collage and book arts. She uses these forms to investigate the dialectics of beholding, the translation between perception and material, and the ways people interpret public and private spaces.
Karen has exhibited internationally in China, South Korea, Slovenia, Germany, the United Kingdom, Finland and Iceland. Her work has also been featured in venues across the United States such as: Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (Novato, Calif.), Power Plant Gallery at Duke University (Durham, N.C.), and the Longview Museum of Fine Arts (Longview, Tex.). Some of Karen’s artist books and collaborative projects are in the collections of Hellenic Centre for Photography (Athens, Greece), Nes Artist Residency (Skagaströnd, Iceland), Joan Flasch Artist Book Collection (SAIC, Chicago, Ill.), The Cleveland Museum of Art (Cleveland, OH) and the University of Wisconsin Green Bay (Green Bay, Wis.).
