Inside Out

(Click on the image to enlarge.)

John Hurrel has recently reviewed the George Fraser exhibition on his eyeCONTACT blog: "a forum built to encourage art reviews and critical discussion about the visual culture of Aotearoa New Zealand." This is what he had to say about my work:

Karen Crisp’s very precise coloured images first impressed me in a Bath Street group show last year. These photographs too are remarkable. They have a subtle dreamlike (or fairytale) quality, a sense of otherworldliness. Their haunting atmosphere draws you back for repeated viewings - for their dimension of strange ‘oddness’ is hard to put your finger on. They are not creepy, just very mysterious. Nor are they ‘over the top.’ Everything is tightly controlled, nuanced and discreet.

The rest can be found here.
