"Karen Kaapcke is story-minded, and works largely with the figure; she trusts the image that emerges, allowing it to remain as raw material as she crafts her narrative. Karen works to form a narrative that has no literal meaning but rather one that relies on a feeling of physical space, as if it were in a poem, a metaphor, or a dream. She crowds or disperses her subjects into funnelled corners, or cavernous rooms, raising or pitching their foundations so that they seem at any minute to fall off the canvas or remain in their space for an undetermined time. Her relationship with the edge of the canvas is historical. She holds the tradition of painting in view as an edge, pushing and pulling at the tradition to contain and at the same time open up, the narrative". -Joanna Karatzas, 2017
