About the Artist

With a background in fashion design, Argentina-born artist, Karen Navarro, works with a highly stylized aesthetic on a diverse array of mediums that includes photography and collage. Her constructed portraits are known for the use of color theory, surreal scenes and minimalist details. Navarro’s work explores themes related to identity and femininity. It expresses self-referential questions that connect in a much larger scale to ideas of social construction of reality.

Navarro lives in Houston since 2014 where she completed the certificate program in photography at Houston Center for Photography. In 2018 Navarro has been awarded a scholarship at Glassell School of Art| The Museum of Fine Art Houston where she studied analog photography. Most recently she has received the Artadia fellowship 2019. Navarro's work has been widely exhibited in the US and abroad.
