“Karen Kulyk: Two Decades 1972-1992”, Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery, 1993
As Paul Duval explains in the forward to Karen Kulyk’s 1993 exhibition catalogue, “Karen Kulyk’s creative curiosity has led her around the world, to studios in France, England and Italy, to Thailand and South America and the Caribbean. In these places, she experienced varied and contrasting images, but the sensibility and imagination with which she interpreted them remained a constant. That constant is woven from a common creative thread...a clear pleasure in the visual phenomena of nature, in floral and arboreal riches, in domestic retreats and market places, in still-life full of abundance and memories.

The art of Karen Kulyk remains linked to the immediate expressions on the retina, to the shapes, colours and textures that impact upon it, and which she transforms into arresting personal images.“
