Karen Kaapke talks about her ongoing series of self portraits, why
she started this series and how it helps her examine the experience
of growing older. There is a certain age at which women - in US
culture at least - become almost invisible. This leads us into a
conversation about how we view our own bodies and how a quick
glance in the mirror can sometimes be surprising. Karen uses
portraiture to examine both her own transitions and her family’s.
We also discuss memory and how it informs her painting, how she
shifts between pieces and lets them play off each other plus a
whole lot more.
