in the atelier…karen rieger

I think you can safely say one of my favorite artists is Cana­dian Karen Rieger. We first spot­ted her work in Cal­gary, and over the years have col­lected seven of her pieces, both large and small. I still enjoy them every day — the vibrancy, the sub­jects, the decep­tive sim­plic­ity of the com­po­si­tions. I don't have an inter­view with her to share, but you can read her artist's state­ment here. Enjoy this selec­tion of her work, avail­able through a num­ber of Cana­dian gal­leries, and one or two in the U.S.

I feel her women are always indulging in hid­den thoughts:

Rieger's flo­ral still life pieces are always lush with color:

What do you think of these gor­geous pieces?
