Karen Emenhiser-Harris was born in Oklahoma, the daughter of an artist and frustrated writer. Karen studied art at the University of Oklahoma, then went to Dallas and exhibited and started writing about art, first for the Deep Ellum Review, then for the Dallas Observer. Emenhiser-Harris edited the founding edition of Circa, then moved to western New York with her husband to open a new University gallery. Karen’s aesthetic leans on longtime visual and emotional associations with vast stretches of unoccupied terrain. The paintings/objects Emenhiser-Harris makes now embody moments and memories, somewhat tangential, of these spaces. She usually avoids focal points. The objects hang on the wall; slightly misshaped, mostly frontal with polished or gilded sides designed to lead the eye elsewhere and presenting a sort of shyness and sensitivity.
