Karen Salicath Jamali is an American artist, born in Denmark, living and working in New York City. She has been working as a painter, sculptor, and a photographer and now also as a composer and pianist for the past 30 years. Participating in over 180 solo and group exhibitions throughout the world including the Louvre Museum in Paris, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Monreale, Kume Museum Tokyo. She has received a number of honors and awards from the international art community including an Oscar in art. Her built works include several permanent public installations and are in more than 700 private collections.
Her artwork is spiritual. She works with nature and diverse materials transmuting energy and light in her artistic vision. Several of her paintings are inspired by the phenomena in general relativity known as “Event Horizons.” An event horizon is a space-time boundary beyond which the laws of physics as we know them, cease to exist. It is her hope that her works speak to the soul and entice the viewer to see beyond the mere physicality of a piece, to a level of deeper personal understanding and emotional meaning.
When sculpting she works predominantly in bronze and glass. Her pieces are at once graceful, delicate, simple and monumental. She draws on the human figure as a common language that speaks to us. Through her style, she is able to achieve works that evoke the universality of the human condition. It is a language that is accessible to all regardless of age, culture, and education. Because of this, her figures, at times, are highly stylistic. They lack detailed hands and faces so that they embody universality. She is able to convey emotion purely through gesture and pose.
Her music is soulful, ethereal, meditative, healing and sublime.
Her work can be seen on permanent display at the Jamali NYC Gallery located in SoHo, New York & Jamali Brickell Gallery, Brickell City Centre, Miami.
