Abington Winter Solo Series 2024, Karen Hunter McLaughlin
Golden Thread refers to the Taoists teaching that there is a continuity that moves through everything in the entire universe. It touches and connects all and everything in all times, places and dimensions.

Expanding on the neural-like imagery in her recent work, Karen introduces symmetry to explore the connections between ourselves and the mysteries of unexplored metaphysics. Could we use our kinship with the non-human, our profound relationships with Nature, to influence how humans can reconnect in this time of critical environmental decay, and political division.

Using rust, botanical dyes, watercolor mediums, and metallics, Karen uses meditation, music and written text as inspiration in creating the network-like structures in her work.
