Karen Joubert Cordier
Karen is a franco american artist since 40 years, she guides us to the colorful world, her inspiration through out her travelling explosed through her art.
A whole universe of Pop Art Cartoons and luxurious jungle, as Alice in Wonderland, animals and vegetals pop out of her work; ready to roar in front of our wide open eyes. The cartoons heros pop out of the canvas transmitting a message, as an exclamation mark pointing out the reality of her dream.
The message is transmitted, it is now up to you to accompany the words and the pictures through out her dream world.
The message pops out the ocean, from imaginary animals, as much as through the oceans as though the giant green garden, the super heroes express themselves with strength and a sense of humor.
The message is transmitted, positivity takes place and the viewer’s eyes illuminate through his strong emotions.

How would you describe your constant state of mind ?
« When you want it, you can get it. What count is to always feel concerned about others and the environment. What you want others to do to you, you must do to them.
Always inpired by what’s going on in the world, extremely mooved by the state of the planet, how humans treat animals, and how humans treat other humans. Always transmit positivity through color and humour. »
