Press release July 10, 2019
Monterey, CA - July 9, 2019 - The Dali Expo in Monterey will showcase new work by local artist Karen Warwick throughout the month of August. The exhibition, "Time Flies," includes three bodies of work: "Kronos" a multimedia interactive time & energy capsule, "Time Flies", a series of paper collages, and "Around the World with KittyBoy," a collection oil paintings. All together, the art creates a sensual and intellectual experience that connects time, energy, and the environment.
"Kronos" is the collaboration of artist Edward M. Corpus and Ms. Warwick. Simply stated, it is a multimedia interactive time and energy capsule. Visitors step through the hatch door of "Kronos, sit back into a racing seat, check dials, adjust steering wheel, and and begin pedaling. When pedaling produces enough electric current, a stimulating multimedia event is powered. Simultaneously, the relationship between mechanical and electric energy is experienced with a surprising time-bending twist.
The paper collages,"Time Flies," entice with vivid imagery and bold messaging especially with respect to time and the urgency of climate disruption. Today, people all around the world experience the current and impending effects of global climate disruption. Yet despite this awareness, reluctance or incapacity to respond is widespread, whether "in the nick of time" or " while there's still time," or if at all. "Time Flies" uses vibrant imagery to provoke thinking about time and the urgency of climate disruption.
For global travelers, "Around the World with KittyBoy" is a natural tour guide. Based on the real imaginary travels of the artist's cat, this collection of oil paintings depicts the adventures of KittyBoy to exotic and famous, ancient and modern landmarks of the world. From Mt. Kilimanjaro to Machu Picchu, KittyBoy invites visitors to share in his colorful view of the world.
