Karen Hickey has always had a fascination with old photographs and paintings documenting people from the past. From witches to bar tenders, to the upper classes to those who had less, circus people, servants and railroad workers, Hickey shows how a garment, with its fabric hanging on the body marking its impression, turns a person into someone who can be categorised.

"The Dude at the Picnic", Karen Hickey, Mixed Media on Wood
Her work observes those fortunate individuals who use clothes, not just for warmth or as a tool to cover themselves, but to form and shape themselves into how they wish to be perceived. She also acknowledges those who have no opportunity for this luxury and are clearly uncomfortable in their garment.
"Blondie at the Picnic", Karen Hickey, Mixed Media on Wood
Karen uses her creative intuition to seek out the essence of a person at first glance - who are they when they speak their truths, what hides under the facade of outfits and smiles? She considers herself to be an observer and a reader of people with an underlying urge to discover their truth and to recognise what is real in them.
