Karin Lithell: Home Sweet Home – On the Move

November 9, 2017 - December 3, 2017

Swedish artist Karin Lithell layers text over acrylic and oil paintings to pose the ineffable questions: what makes a home a home? How do you make a home for yourself when you’ve been forced to move? How much of the animal population being pushed away from their homes is due to habitat loss? Lithell broaches these topics by incorporating printing into her paintings, allowing her work to be read by viewers in a more literal sense — a text message of sorts. Her exhibit, “Home Sweet Home — On the Move” will be on view at The Art League gallery, November 9— December 3, 2017.
