Karen Hymer inherits much from the work of Julia Margaret Cameron. Both women's imagery steers away from the realistic or documentary and toward the personal and poetic. Rich textures and deep shadows, realized in hand-made images that focus on the world of women, tie their styles together in both appearance and spirit. Although Hymer’s art, executed in polymer photo-gravure, starts in thoroughly modern digital form, it connects, in the end, to traditional etching and engraving, with prints pressed one at a time on fine art paper, each image showing a unique artist’s touch. Her nudes are real, temporal, and human, shown clearly connected to nature and its seasons.
