Karen Navarro
I don't see myself - Abstract pop pink & yellow self-portrait in oval mirror

2016

US$1,400

About

"I don't see myself" by Karen Navarro is a pop pink and yellow abstract mirror self-portrait of the artist dressed in a pink top and a pink wig. Photographing the artist's reflection in a double-rimmed, powder blue mirror with floral detailing, Navarro's image holds viewers in an intimate space while simultaneously keeping them at a distance. "I don't see myself" comes from Navarro's "Deconstruction" series, in which the artist creates "indirect self-portraits that [explore] the relationship between perfection and failure, identity, isolation and ambiguity." Named after Jacques Derrida's philosophy of deconstruction, the series "shows how we rebuild ourselves based on what we have learned and what has been imposed upon us." Karen Navarro is an Argentine-born multidisciplinary artist currently living and working in Houston. Using a diverse array of mediums that includes photography, collage, and sculpture, Navarro’s image-based work centers around the topic of identity. Trained as a fashion designer and photographer, the artist studied at the University of Buenos Aires and completed the certificate program in photography at Houston Center for Photography. Her constructed portraits are known for the use of color theory, surreal scenes, and minimalist details. Navarro's work has been exhibited in the US and abroad. Selected shows include Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH); Lawndale Art Center, Houston, USA; Elisabet Ney Museum, Austin, USA; Melkweg Expo, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Houston Center for Photography, Houston, USA; and Museo de la Reconquista, Tigre, Argentina. Navarro’s work has been featured in numerous publications, including SPOT Magazine, Aint—Bad, Lenscratch, and Vogue Italia.
