Karen Seapker's recent paintings have focused on and questioned ideas of re-birth and renewal, both genuine and misguided. These paintings reflect on water, its cyclical and symbolic nature, and ideas surrounding baptisms and also drownings. In these isolated images that keep any resolution at bay, some paintings present images of emergence, while in others, there remains a question as to whether or not a resurgence may or may not take place.
