About Karen E Joyce

Birthplace: Boston, Massachusetts
The language of image opens up a field of inquiry that constitutes my experience: the exchange between the past and present that keeps me moving forward, giving me the opportunity to explore and record my interaction with the events that emerge through my participation. Completing the cycle is the material, process and context of metaphor in action providing me with an avenue of direct experience that allows a momentary, weighted, transitory glimpse of my reality.
