Art and poetry have always been beautiful things.

A little while ago we noticed they started to get really beautiful – perhaps it’s a reaction to the binary, restricted view we get in the digital world – here in the real world the physical has the opportunity to display itself in all its glory.

Highlighted, the beautifully talented Artist Karen Baum.

Sunflower – the original has been created from felt fabric.

Working from still life, sketch book designs and photographs, Karen uses a colourful palette of wools, some dyed naturally from avocados, red and white onion skins and some commercially dyed merino wools.

Poetry in Art.

Poetry in Art.

Sad Vegetables.

Six mottled tomatoes, one courgette
An odd-shaped pepper I didn’t forget,
Not enough for a fried chop suey
A vegatable pie … or ratatoulle.

You could’ve had a much worse fate
By ending up on a dinner plate,
Boiled alive or dunked in dips,
All chopped up without your pips.

You’re better off buried deep
In the bowels of the compost heap,
You’ll have a chance to survive
By not being one of our daiy five.

Available to purchase at only £3.50 from Church Lane Gallery in Banbury.

You can engage with Karen via La Casa Art. on Facebook.

Like the peacock showing its feathers to full effect to increase its chances of attracting a mate, the Artist is doing the same, all jostling for attention, all desperate to be picked up, viewed, to be admired, perhaps to be chosen as a gift, and ultimately to be enjoyed.
