Karin Franzen will have several pieces on display at the Pacini Lubel Gallery in downtown Seattle during the month of March in an exhibition titled "The Tame and the Wild". Pictured here is "Quietus", 42"h x 33"w. The techniques used are described by Karin as follows - "It actually has four layers of sheers - the top two are hand-dyed and printed. The lower two are synthetics that add some glimmer and deepen the hues of the piece. The images are built up from recycled clothing. And I did use some oil paintsticks on it and also hand stitching with heavy cotton thread." More information on the exhibition can be found at http://www.pacinilubel.com/ .
