Karen Yurkovich is a Canadian artist working between Vancouver, Canada and Florence, Italy. An integral part of her artistic practice concerns the relationship between culture and nature. Her work addresses the many ways in which nature and humanity have co-existed and co-evolved and her paintings integrate and interpret scientific categories and modes of representation. Beautiful, iconic and fragile, they are hybrids, where incongruent elements exist together and relationships become textual, as hinted at in the titles.
