Karen Musmeci

My art reflects ancient culture meeting modern materials. It is influenced by the depth of history I have seen in my travels through Europe, Egypt and living in England. I collected all this visual material; the pealing walls of Italy, the overwhelming height of the ceiling in the Cologne Cathedral and all the artists, all the wonderful artist both living and dead. Their sculptures on the stress, their monuments in the cities and a hundred museums full of their greatest stuff.

I work in metal. I find inspiration in scrap yards, the discarded elements of industry. I love transforming the materials I find into something beautiful. I feel the textures I create echo the past from which I am influenced.
