In the Garden of Permanence flowers grow that are moments in life from one and all; they are actions, sensations, and gestures that remain forever.
Karina experiences and searches still further.
Each painting is at once individual and part of a larger creative process that begins in the moment when she intently seeks out chance. She says what she feels without the interference of thinking or preordaining her words. Following her instinct, she introduces us to a moment that comes from inside and follows its current without a prescribed direction.
Her natural colors and shapes give us the impression of harmony, and are bound with eternity, all that lasts, that is complete, with our everlasting questions and searchings and all that is unknown to us. The circle symbolizes opening and return, life and death, beginning and end, the connection between the individual and the whole.
Karina paints life, and without meaning to, confronts us with death and our own reality. Only if we understand that nothing lasts forever in the form in which we imagine, we will also understand that nothingness is a part of eternity.
