Part of The Artist's Life series

"Exquisite, unabashedly feminine wall paintings/installations brimming with abstracted organic forms that mimic tropical flowers, garlands, shrubs and gentle rains. Azoulay fashions pastel fantasylands out of delicate fabrics, ribbons, pompoms, coffee filters, egg cartons and other cheap domestic materials. One of a generation of emerging artists who reject stark modernism, Azoulay possesses a sensibility that is ornate, Victorian and deliberately sentimental."
     -Maclean's Magazine, Ten Artists Who Rock

Karen Azoulay's work can only be described as a visual phantasmagoria that is a combination of romance and kitsch. She discusses her technique of submerging the viewer in an installation to make them part of it, the joy she gets out of collecting materials in hardware stores and discount bins, and the research and planning she puts into her seemingly playful work. She also comments on the insistent observation that she is a feminist or political artist.
