Installation Information

Karen Fisher’s inspiration for the murals in two of the Maven Hotel suites begins with the figure. Culled from fashion magazines, Karen finds fashion model imagery and builds her own rendering using multiple references, highlighting the gestural aspects of the figure. Some of her garment references come from Japanese textile patterns found in books about Samurai warriors, while other design pattern ideas come from history books where markings on ancient artifacts are re-imagined as clothing designs. These influences enter her work to create a new woman altogether.
