Moving Atlas (artist portfolio)

  • Karen Yen


Using the language of maps, I take on the role of cartographer by tracing emotions, sensations, perceptions and the unchartered realms of my imagination associated with being a person of an ever changing diaspora. Using acrylic paints, paper collage and charcoal on canvas and paper, I rearticulate the practice of mapping by drawing from the landscapes of my memory and imagination. This allows me to temporarily orient myself in this vast world while venturing beyond the boundaries of geography to examine the contradictions between the nature of our imagination and physical boundaries.
