Karen J. Revis


Over the course of her career Karen Revis has found her voice in both silk screen monoprints and cast resin, creatively exploring mark making, texture and color by using a variety of mediums, including encaustics, silkscreen monoprints, and most recently her graphic, hard-edged mixed media on cast resin. With considerable technical prowess, Revis creates abstract worlds of seductive surfaces and at times, puzzling visual depth.   

Born in Washington D.C., educated at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Pratt Institute, and a longtime Brooklyn resident, Revis has exhibited work at Sears-Peyton Gallery (NY), Metaphor Contemporary Art (Brooklyn), Bruno Marina Gallery (Brooklyn), Rush Art Gallery (NY), Pentimenti Gallery (Philadelphia), and others.  Revis was featured in Joanne Mattera’s The Art of Encaustic Painting: Contemporary Expression in the Ancient Medium of Pigmented Wax (Watson-Guptill Publications, 2001).  She was Artist in Residence at Henry Street Settlement. Her work is held by private and corporate collections worldwide.
