What Is Urban? at Brixton East

Karin exhibited her work In the Eye of the Beholder in the South London Women Artists exhibition What Is Urban? at the Brixton East Gallery from 26 February to 11 March 2015.

Here is a link to the SLWA website.


An open space by the Thames was landscaped with a retaining wall of sawn-off tree trunks running alongside a street that led to the river. The tree trunks had been vandalized: they had been burnt – hence the dark charcoal-black look. Here are the urban opposites: creativity to enhance the urban environment and actions to deface and destroy and yet through the later daubing of blue paint creating, by default, something oddly beautiful. I have tried to capture this process as well as referencing the proximity to the Thames.
