With each piece, I begin by importing a photograph into a modular graphics-synthesizer program where I implement a variety of algorithms. I use polar space, fractal space, assorted modulations, reflections, waves, distortions and symmetries to achieve each layer of my digital constructs. Using this technology, I draw out the essence of my subject, placing focus on details and developing an emotion through repetition and distortion – Karen Hochman Brown, Los Angeles  

 

(Los Angeles, California) – With a continual sense of discovery, Los Angeles artist Karen Hochman Brown continues her creative stride, altogether transforming nature, man-made objects, and the natural world into kaleidoscopic creations of uncanny realism. In her recently completed project with LA METRO, Hochman Brown drew inspiration from the Arboretum’s nonnative species and surroundings like the peacock, aloe plant and train tracks. These elements were drawn into a cohesive whole whose elements spoke to intersections between nature and history. 

 

In the artist’s forthcoming exhibition Elementals at MOAH, Hochman Brown draws upon the elemental building blocks of life: air (AER), water (AQUA), fire (IGNUS), and earth (TERRA). Hochman Brown alternately departs from the aluminum substrates for which her works has been previously printed upon. The works in Elementals are printed on fabric banners and embedded with QR codes that when activated by viewers present interactive media such as the work’s source material and a video tracing its process of creation. The works in "Elementals" not only continue to push the boundaries of new media, but also highlight harmonious relationships between nature and humanity. 

 

Karen Hochman Brown received her B.A. in Art from Pitzer College, has continued to study math, and did post-graduate work at California College of the Arts and Crafts where her Master’s thesis introduced Construction Geometry via Art, a Junior High School curriculum she taught at Pasadena Waldorf School. She continued to study the interconnections of math and art via technology at UCLA studying graphic design in late-nineties. Her work has been widely exhibited in California and the United States.
