Biography

Karen Kunc explores an “image bank” inspired from print culture references, and natural treasures.  These ideas are transformed into prints by handwork, intuition, and the printmaking processes of woodcut and etching, in an evolutionary flow of color and intricate detail.  She follows threads of connection and visual stimulus to provoke ideas of in betweenness that all experience in our sense of place or displacement, in the accident of our location or need for migration.  In this way she mirrors ideas on our use and abuse of the natural world, of the human condition and the forces that shape our in between stasis.    

 

Karen Kunc was born in Omaha, Nebraska.   She received her BFA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1975, and her MFA from Ohio State University in 1977.  She is the Cather Professor of Art at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.  Her works have been shown in exhibitions nationally and internationally: The National Academy Museum, NY; Sheldon Museum of Art; Davidson Galleries, Seattle; Krakow Print Triennial, Poland; Excellence, Chamalieries, France; Invisible Cities, Ca’ Zenobio, Venice, Italy; Galerija Art 55, Nis, Serbia; Highpoint Center for Printmaking, Minneapolis; ARTag Gallery, Helsinki, Finland.   Her prints and artists books are in numerous public collections:  Museum of Modern Art, NY; the Library of Congress; New York Public Library; Stanford University; Milwaukee Art Museum; Haas Arts Library Yale University; Jyväskylä Art Museum, Finland; Huntington Museum, WV; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington DC; Zimmerlie Art Museum Rutgers University; Cleveland Museum of Art; Honolulu Museum of Art; Joslyn Art Museum.  She has taught workshops around the world, in Egypt, Italy, Finland, Poland, Japan, France, Mexico, Iceland, Bangladesh, Spain; and she has lectured as a visiting artist to over 200 institutions, including: University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, University of Tennessee, University of Georgia, Cornell University, American University Cairo, Academy of Art Helsinki Finland, University of Virginia, Kyoto Seika University Japan.
