Karen Ann Myers
Karen Ann Myers received her BFA from Michigan State University and her MFA from Boston University. She is Assistant Director of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at College of Charleston in South Carolina. Meyers has shown all over the US in numerous solo and group exhibitions.
Myers’ work examines what she refers to as ‘the cult of beauty’ in contemporary mass media. The works featured in “I have a secret wish…” are large, photo-realistic paintings, depicting hyper-sexualized young women in their bedrooms. These voyeuristic paintings are grand in scale but intimate in their observations about the psychology of our sex-obsessed culture.
