Weaving Tales: Kaoru Mansour

There is nothing better than a good yarn.  And by yarn, I mean story, although the fiber kind can be pretty satisfying, too.  One of the things that I love about Mr. Forager is his propensity for spinning tales.  Los Angeles based artist Karou Manour weaves visual stories throughout her work, whether figurative, abstract, sculpture, or landscape, her work catches us in the midst of a mystery.

Yoshinobu 1949, collage, acrylic and ganbi tissue on wood panel, 16×16

Each piece has such an clandestine atmosphere, making us wonder where we have found ourselves, what we are seeing, and how it came to be.

It feels as if we are caught in the midst of an ancient story, one filled with myth and mysticism.
