Karen Piloto’s The Stranger was first exhibited in 2008 at Haley-Henman as part of her ink
on canvas series entitiled,
" Origin of the Thought Process".
Ms. Piloto states, " As a young Cuban artist residing in Dallas, this series of thirteen paintings using the medium of ink on canvas marked the beginning of my professional career as an artist. I chose ink for its fluidity, transparency and versatility to layer and create strong lines, for its control and lack of control. These works allowed me to realize the joy of painting when I was a child. This memory reinforced the interplay of my past life in Cuba and my new life in the United States. These paintings expressed my identity development, my state of ethos, my Cuban culture, feelings of sensuality, strong emotional viewpoints, and the complexity of our social relationships shown by lines and drips of color."
Karen Piloto has chosen the Westie Rescue
of North Texas as for her charity. This not for profit (501 (c)(3) rescues, rehabilitates abused, abandoned, neglected, homeless and surrendered West Highland White Terriers.
Ms. Piloto has increased the donation to 40%
of the auction price.
