A bit different than my other work, this piece is part of a small series I did in an emotional response to the ugliness and horrors of war. The scratches, splatters, scrapes and markings represent the lives and landscapes being destroyed by conflicts happening around the world. It has imagery and hidden messages and hopes to evoke emotion in the viewer as they take in the ragged and complex layers of the painting.

Karen Marki's paintings are layers of several works built onto the canvas like an excavation site, encouraging the viewer to see what lies beneath. Her process includes using unusual tools to create markings and texture inspired by both the urban and natural world.
