Karen Kraven is a Montreal-based artist who draws inspiration from the world of competitive sports. Working in photography, sculpture and installation, Kraven often straddles the line between representation and abstraction. Kraven’s work is in the collections of the Art Gallery of Ontario, TD Bank Group, the Royal Bank of Canada and Banque Nationale. She has had recent solo exhibitions at Mercer Union (Toronto), the Darling Foundry (Montreal) and the ICA in Portland, Oregon. This fall, she will have a solo exhibition at her Montreal gallery, Parisian Laundry, and participate in a group show in Marseille, France.
