Karen Goetzinger is a visual artist who after living in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and New York, now resides in Ontario, Canada. Her abstract work is exhibited by public and commercial galleries throughout North America, and has been shown in exhibition spaces in China and Australia. It hangs in both private and corporate collections internationally. Utilizing layers of mixed media such as acrylic, ink, graphite and oil pastel, she expressively marks the imprint of time and place on individual memory. Each large scale painting is intentionally without figurative elements allowing the viewer to become the human element, in solitary interaction with the abstract landscape and their own narratives.
