” I’m always looking for the soul in human beings (and also in animals, but that’s more difficult). When I look at people and when I talk and listen to them, I want to reach their souls, to leave the surface behind and go deeper to find their inner beauty. Since I usually paint portraits, I always search for images of people who have a very silent expression on their faces and in their attitudes. They are in their inner world, looking out with direct stares, or looking away, dreamily captured in their own world. You don’t know what they’re thinking and it’s in this moment, I believe, that you can see their soul and make a connection with your own soul. I want people to have a connection with my paintings, through their soul.” – Karien Deroo

The authoress is producing series of large-format color photographs, which powerfully attack the viewer not only with their formal and technical refinement but also with their mysterious content, unsettling the viewer and raising disturbing questions.

Stash it in a trunk. Check it on a plane. Stow it on a sailboat. Hike it in to remote waters. No garage, SUV or roof racks necessary. The Oru Kayak makes boating simple, easy, and accessible— so you can spend more time on the water. The Oru Kayak is fast, stable, and handles incredibly well. Its light weight makes it fast and easy to paddle. The hard chines offer excellent tracking. And the 25″ width makes balancing easy, even for beginners.

” Most of the art that I produce might have a dark feel to it, but I always try to implement something more. Nothing is ever 100% pure/evil. There is beauty and humor in everything. Light and shadow are never really separated, I think it’s more like one is always leaning on the other. Anything can be sensual and beautiful as well as horrifying and evil, it just depends on what you choose to see. These are the themes I try to explore when I am painting.” – Daniel Karlsson
