Karen Olson is a photography-based artist working at the intersection of human emotion and the natural world. She uses the medium to illustrate the language of the subconscious and dig deep into the psyche. Karen employs diverse materials and methods of construction to create her ethereal imagery and sculpture.
Recently interviewed for her project Wildlight by the Maine Museum of Photographic Arts, her sculptural photography has gained attention and press. Several of her images from an additional project, Between Two Worlds, were chosen for the show Behind the Lens-Women in Photography at the Rhode Island Center for Photography. The Griffin Museum of Photography in Boston featured the project in a virtual gallery show, her book with the same title was included in the Davis-Orton/Griffin Museum Photobook Show.
