Karen Chappelow is an expressionist artist and sculptor that offers a daring commentary on contemporary society. She draws heavily from history, anthropology, mythology, and pop culture in a way that overthrows original gender dynamics and hands the reins of control back to women, or the oppressed and unapologetically, adding a twist of sassy humour to the mix. She has been Sculpting and painting for more than 20 years and has collectors around the world.

I like it when I get a physical reaction from people when they view my art. The whimsy, fun and sometimes political nature of life is evident in my work. By expressing the fierceness of a female, the ridiculous in a scenario , becomes a message turned into humour to soften the blow, breaking down barriers. The expressionist nature of my work tries to blur the edges of reality and hopefully makes people smile, wonder and to think and create conversation.
