THIS WEEK ON WONDEREUR, KARINE ROUGIER DRAWS US DEEPER INTO HER IMAGINARY WORLD OF EXOTIC CHARACTERS
As with many artists, the starting point of Karine’s work consists of observations from her real-world experiences. From this realistic beginning, however, Karine adds layer upon layer of fantasy, horror and whimsy, re-imagining real life to create artworks that delve into the delightfully monstrous. Through this cast of fantasy characters, Karine investigates a host of subjects including myth, magic and what it really means to be human.
Karine Rougier was recommended for Wondereur by Dorothée Dupuis. The photos for Karine’s Marseille-based story were taken by Hélène Davide.
ps: Did you hear that Wondereur got an honorary mention in the Lifestyle category of the 2013 Webby awards? We’re thrilled to share the (virtual) stage with such fantastic companies as Martha Stewart Living and The New York Times. Thanks, Webby’s! "
