Guest Star Friday #117...Karin Roy Andersson


Last night I attended the opening reception for "Catching Big Fish," a new solo exhibition at Beyond Fashion in Antwerp by today's Guest Star, Karin Roy Andersson. The work is inspired by fish and the ocean. Each piece is made with recycled plastic, sterling silver, and/or gold that is layered and sewn together to reference scales. The forms also resemble fish themselves--new species, just identified. The pieces are incredibly lightweight as well as lush, with wonderful, subtle texture and detail.


Karin also gave a talk the night before, briefly telling the story of her background and describing this new body of work. I am so happy I was there to enjoy both events and to meet and talk with Karin in person!
