Born of Freedom
by David Bowes
Born of the freedom and mature vocabulary of form shared by the freshest contemporary art making, Karin Luner's works are a joy to see. Both funny and profound, provocative yet non-confrontational, hers is a language nicely tense with intelligence.
Robust earthy humor and heartfelt generosity are at play in these objects. Casual beauty and formal elegance have been coaxed from the most modest and homely materials and made to convey the lessons of a lifetime.
Luner's art does not shrink from hard truths and bitter circumstance, and it does not become the timely digest of the moment, finding resolution in the flux of being and knowing, it is the living witness to existence. Lasting proof of constancy and spirit.
