I like to place Ned Kelly in ridiculous scenarios. This painting highlights a few of mans folly, that of Conspiracy Theories. I have placed 5G phones and robots around the painting as there are many (far too many) believe that inside the immunisation are robots and 5G bits that roam around our body and change our genes (DNA) thus Ned is riding his rocking horse in denim jeans.

About the Artist
Karen’s style is expressionism-distortion, inspired by artists such as Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, Modigliani and Picasso. She has collectors locally, nationally, and internationally over her 20-year art career.
Expressionism isn’t for everyone and I enjoy the quirky, unusual and weirdness of life which I think you can see in my work. In my early years I was a punk and that mentality still sits with me the non-conformity etc. I want to make people talk, sometimes shock but mostly smile and laugh when they view my work. You won’t find me painting landscapes I need to have an opinion.
This drive for bucking the system stems from her love of punk music and her thirst for the unusual, which in turn creates disruption and gives people the invitation to view life through a different lens. She leaves stories half told on a canvas to make an impression and invite the observer to create their own story about what they see.
