Karen Rosenkrantz

When: May 20-July 31 2016

In “Birdwatching: A Metaphor for Surveillance” at Steven Jupiter Gallery in Middlebury, the Boston- and New York-based painter uses oils to create collage-like scenes of birds and birdwatchers. While both human and animal are frequently rendered with the lifelike precision characteristic of traditional oil paintings, Karen Rosenkrantz’s graphic sensibility and use of fragmentation are decidedly contemporary. She asserts these works are about forms of surveillance on several levels, including “boys watching girls and … girls feeling watched,” and the increasing government surveillance of citizens.
