Contemporary Abstract Paintings by Artist Karen Banker.

Working from a secluded studio on five acres of wooded land in a rural hamlet near the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, USA, Banker creates works full of vibrant color fields eliciting tension and movement that stir deep emotional connections with the viewers. Influenced by 20th-century abstract expressionists including Mark Rothko and Robert Motherwell, Banker's award-winning paintings have been exhibited in galleries and major art shows in New York City, Miami, Los Angeles, Charlotte, San Diego, Rochester, San Francisco, as well as internationally in Lisbon, Portugal, and Paris, France. Art critics site Banker's work as "powerful, intense, and thought-provoking".
