Artist of the moment…. karen Shapiro

 

 

This artist is great and I enjoy her works. I read about last month in one of the national art magazines. She was smoking a cigarette and working on a piece. She works mainly in ceramics and works in a large scale in her works.  She reminds me of the pop art movement that saw Warhol make famous ordinary objects like Brillo Boxes.

Her work is vibrant and full of life, since its larger than life size, especially the prozac pill, I definitely call it ART!

One of the artists galleries is in Scottsdale, Arizona and here is a link for that gallery.

This artist is inspirational for the fact that she makes mundane objects unique and they will be around on earth for thousands of years for future beings to enjoy.
