Home Life

 

"Karen Haas’s take on Home Life is both enticing and alarming. Pools of light have more authority than the objects they illuminate. Creeping shadows steal the show from the backyard objects they pursue. Pillows take on motives of their own, while a patterned quilt holds one owner at bay and draws another in, perhaps permanently.

Combining a Modernist flattening of the picture plane and a Post-Modernist privileging of arbitrary details, with Cezanne-like "three dimensional" forms built up of planes of color, Haas conjures up a visual environment worthy of investigation – and a touch of caution."
