Using digital manipulation techniques, Karen Savage transforms domestic objects into arresting works of art that
transcend the mundane nature of their original materials. In Constellations, she converts doilies into stellar bodies in
an attempt to transport the commonplace, the insignificant, to the realm of the ethereal. In doing so, she notes the
fleeting quality of each: just as constellations exist temporarily, passing into and out of being with startling yet predictable
quickness, so does the human life. Her work presents an exploration of temporality that extends far beyond the
decorations themselves—it encompasses the cosmos.
