Karim’s gilt-leafed canvases are set around lands lived and imagined, in histories and geographies of her choosing, places rich with meaning and life despite the physical absence of human figures. Hers are narratives built around life-lines of waters, in cities with significant sea histories.

Established layer by layer, with lines that are repositories of those memories, she combines the blazing sun in Egypt with the waterways in the Philippines, the banks of Tripoli with the lakes of Switzerland.
