Art as a Tool for Addressing Trauma

Artlight (2022) by Karen Gross

Karen Gross has an ever increasing portfolio of artworks designed to inspire and engage.  Her works are mixed media and often ask the viewer to engage in the works and even replicate them.  She uses common objects to create texture including yarn, marbles, sand, string, puzzle pieces, fabric, shredded paper, pencil eraser tips and broken pottery among other items.  Her work also often contains words or phrases.

Karen’s works have been inspired by the world renowned artist Stephen Hannock, whose work (always with words embedded) hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC and the artist and art framer Ylva Callewaert.

Karen’s work has been shown at the Rocky Neck Art Colony Member Exhibit  (March 2022) and the juried Delta Kappa Gamma International online gallery for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022.;  She also uses her art in presentations to educators and in blogs published in Medium among other locations.  Copies of selected of her works are available on the website ArtPal and Voice.;
