“Cobalt Blues” by Artist Karen Ösp Pálsdóttir

Paintings by artist Karen Ösp Pálsdóttir. Pálsdóttir received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in 2013. Her most recent monochromatic works explore various subjects through a Cobalt Blue lens. Inspired by the delicate interplay of elasticity and depth, each composition becomes part of a larger exploration of temporality and impermanence:

“This ‘modern, Improved Blue’ becomes a tactile experience in monochromatic simplicity and invites the viewer to peer through a singular lens, akin to an optical filter. The Blue Star Fern, a reoccurring collaborator, often emerges as a fusion of transparency and distortion. It stands as a quiet observer of the evolving lucidity of the human condition and the dance between what is and what might be.”
