"Things are a Bit Up in the Air"
2005
Acrylic on canvas 30 x 40

"Dreamscapes"
February 2 - 27, 2006
A solo show of paintings by Karen Weiss
The Eisemann Center for the Arts
2351 Performance Drive
Richardson TX 75082

The vibrant, uplifting imagery found in Karen Weiss's paintings
is created using vivid colors and glowing light.

Messages of the paintings range from the spiritual to the humorous to the ironic.
In her work, Ms. Weiss primarily uses imaginary landscape and playful architectural
forms to comment on situations both personal and global.

In the "Sanctuary" series the artist creates an atmosphere of comfort and beauty.
These paintings offer us a haven to retreat to when we find the need for an
inspirational pick-me-up. Works in this series include "Temple in the Woods",
"Firefly Lullaby" and "My Lucky Stars".

Some of the works refer to recent historic events. "The Watchtower" and
"When the World Ends" have an underlying sentiment of gloom and doom
beneath the lively cartoon-like fašade, as they were painted in response to
the threats of weapons of mass destruction and the onset of the war in Iraq.
"The Covenant of the Big Easy" suggests a story of 'Noah's Ark in New Orleans'.

Other works refer to the artist's personal life. "An Ordinary Day" speaks of the
joys of motherhood, while "Things are a Bit Up in the Air" is a comment about the
uncertainties in the life of an artist.

Besides fine art paintings, Ms. Weiss also has created an inspirational line
of jewelry. Karen's paintings will be on display at her solo show at the
Eisemann Center for the Arts in Richardson through February. For more
