THE ARTIST STORY
Karin Batten was born in Hamburg, Germany and studied painting
and sculpture at Central Saint Martins College, London and received her
MFA from Hunter College (CUNY), New York City. She is represented by
June Kelly Gallery in New York City. For the last three years she has
been the director and curator of the Westbeth Gallery in NYC.
Batten has shown her work in solo and group exhibitions in
the United States and Europe. Her work is included in many permanent collections, and has received grants for public art from the NYC MTA,
two Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grants and an Artists’ Fellowship
in Painting from the New York Foundation for the Arts.
Her paintings are richly layered, giving rise to dense and luminous atmosphere filled with air and moisture.
