Karen Woods has long been fascinated by a view of the world "from the inside looking out". This subject manifests itself primarily in paintings of streetscapes as seen from the inside of a car, often through a rain-soaked windshield.
The new paintings launch this motif out to sea; that is, they represent the view from a cruise taken around the periphery of Manhattan. While not geographically far from the city streets, these seascapes present the entirely new challenge of painting water through water.
