// Artist: Karine Boulanger

Born in Beirut, raised in Paris and having moved to Australia in 2010, artist Karine Boulanger brings a wealth of culture to the fore-front of the contemporary art scene. Her work incorporates attributes of European classicism alongside the enchanting realism of Latin American paintings. Distinctive to her practice, and that which makes her work prominent, is her extensive use of copper, bronze and silver leaf. For Boulanger, this material performs as an “evocation of space, a metaphor for the quest after inner illumination”.
