Karen Miranda-Rivadeneira on her "Meda" series

from her New York studio, May 11, 2020

Enjoy the spiritual atmosphere of KAREN MIRANDA-RIVADENEIRA's art practice, as her life has returned to the basics as a result of the pandemic. She invites you into her daily life in New York City as she contemplates the regeneration of her community. Everything from morning rituals to choosing materials for her photographs and paintings is connected to the Mesoamerican heritage that empowers her mind and body. For her recent MEDA series, she reenacts the legends of the first human woman amid primeval landscapes of rocks and caves.
