Kari Garon is a multidisciplinary artist from Milwaukee, WI. Primarily recognized for her prints and collages of figurative forms, she communicates through intimate illustrative drawings and object making. Garon’s work often focuses on addressing the contemporary political and sociological issues of identity, multiculturalism, and the American ideal. More specifically, the continual fluctuation between real and imaginary personas creates a cast of characters in an attempt to cope with a multiplicity of intersecting identities; each seeking to understand historical and contemporary issues of power and agency. Her artwork has been seen in solo shows through out the state of Wisconsin and group exhibitions internationally.
