Growing up surrounded by the sounds of classical and jazz music, Karen Mosbacher’s journey as an
abstract expressionist painter developed utilizing a condition, (or gift, as she refers to it) known as a
synesthesia; a perceptual phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads
to involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway Working with music of different
genres, as well as poetry, story, and other auditory processes, Karen creates paintings full of rhythm,
color, line work, texture, balance, and movement with imagines portraying vibrations of sound waves
with thick and graceful textured layers of strokes.
