Karen Gabel Madsen
Karen Gabel Madsen's paintings have been described as multiple exposures of culture and nature. The painting teeters between abstraction and figuration, and Madsen’s motifs contain both landscape and architecture, often bridges, stations or even lifting cranes, which are fused with over- or underlying layers of foliage or other elements from nature. But man is absent, creating a fateful and mysterious mood in the pictures.
Karen Gabel Madsen has been exhibited all over Denmark and in Skåne. Works can be found in several important Danish collections and in Sweden, among others, in the collection of the Swedish National Public Art Council.
