These are a selected group of works and installation photographs from the exhibition. For a complete list of available works please contact us.

Karen Rifas

Karen Rifas is known for large scale architectural installations in three media: leaf and cord installations, cord and mural installations, and colorful solid geometric shapes in two and three dimensions. Rifas’ 20-year collaboration with choreographer and dancer Dale Andre animates her installations in a way that expresses how Rifas, once a dancer herself, thinks about space. Of the first mode, a stand-out example was in the Acqua restaurant in Miami’s Four Seasons hotel; in 2004 Richard Lorie wrote in the New York Times that “the art in question was a piece by the Miami artist Karen Rifas in which actual leaves were sewn in patterns that shimmered entrancingly in the changing air currents of the room.”

Her exhibition at MDC Museum of Art + Design, curated by Jeremy Mikolajczak, presented 19 years of her installation work in the Oolite Walgreens Window, private residences, galleries, and museums in the form of her scale models for them. She told George Fishman, who wrote about the exhibition in the Miami Herald, “My work is about understanding space — imagining, utilizing it and enhancing it.[…]In my work I try to encompass.”

The third body of work transitioned from quite minimal to broadly colorful and expansive. Describing Rifas’ show at the Bass Museum of Art in 2018, Sandra Schulman of the Palm Beach ArtsPaper wrote that her installation was “a joyous contained geometric exploration of color in materials and shapes as diverse as paint, vinyl, paper, and three-dimensional sculptural boxes and benches and rugs. The colors are juicily non-primary with teal blue, blood orange, hibiscus pink, lilac lavender and sunset red popping on the walls and floors.”

Schulman’s descriptions and synopsis crystallized the magnitude of Rifas’ achievement. Schulman continued: “This is Rifas’ first solo museum exhibition in over 10 years and you can tell she had fun playing with the malleability of perception. She’s been working this territory for a long time, playing with lines in space by threading leaves or string across rooms and space. This creates shapes both inner and outer, art that is Pop and Op. It’s particularly suited to Miami, where the light, flora, and architecture sings in these rich, tropic colors year round.”
