Painter Karen Ann Myers‘ work features a brilliant array of patterns and colors that seemingly leap off of the canvas. Depicting women lounging in bed amidst vividly decorated sheets, blankets, comforters, and rugs, the decor and their patterns steal the show. Myers captures these patterns with such rich accuracy that the medium starts to come into question and spur statements of disbelief. How could this be a painting? The level of execution involved in Meyers’ work is beyond stellar, it is phenomenal.
