Artist Statement

Karen Logan is a visual artist and creative practitioner based on the boarder of Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire, UK.

Karen's work spans installation, social and sculptural practices. She uses domestic craft processes with low value or found materials, leaning into overlooked and/or undervalued stories, fascinated by people, land and place. Her relationship to the outdoors is explored through walking and foraging and site-specific work.

As a Creative Practitioner, Karen engages audiences in playful processes to explore, consider, invent and share contemporary art.
