Taking inspiration from nature’s intricate patterns, delicate colors, and ethereal shapes, the artist constructs symmetrical forms from source material she photographs from botanic gardens around the world. The photos are mapped kaleidoscopically and undergo extensive digital intervention.   In previous work the artist engaged questions about cultural identity. Her works referenced Judaic iconography with their six-point structures and formed the basis of the artist’s technical, expressive, and conceptual investigations. Currently, Hochman Brown’s subject has evolved to a broader consideration of the natural world and its irreducible makeup of fractal geometries. Comprised of multiple layers of floral imagery, Hochman Brown isolates and pieces together their disparate elements into abstracted kaleidoscopic tapestries. The artist’s painterly process utilizes various digital photographic editing tools and software in her meticulous manipulations of tonality, brightness, and saturation to create an illusion of depth.   The public is invited to attend one of the demos in which the artist will be in residence to demonstrate her creative process using the library’s grounds as the subject. She will be   available to answer questions while she develops a new work on Sunday, March 11th, March 24th, and April 1st, 2018.   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.
