Karen Weeks is primarily a printmaker, utilizing the letterpress printing machine to generate her imagery. Her focus on pattern and repetition is reflected in her use of this outmoded technology built for creating multiples of the same image. Creating exact replicas, though, is not her aim; instead through exploring the variations within limitations, she finds a more compelling goal. After generating these images and color fields, she later collages them into unique pieces of artwork. Karen finds inspiration from nature and enjoys meditating on the repetitious systems of nature from which all patterns evolve; evoking in her imagery the cross section of technology and the natural world.
