Born in Kanagawa in 1998, Karen Shiozawa spent several years of her childhood in the Netherlands and graduated Major in Fine Arts Graduate School of Tokyo Zokei University. Shiozawa is consistently seeking to expand the realm of communication mediated through her work. While projecting her childhood memories and everyday feelings into the two-dimensional works, she is also aiming to represent a world that is perceived through means other than sight by pursuing the phenomenon like sound and light. She was awarded the Best Formative Art Prize at the Asian Creative Art Exhibition 2018 held at The National Art Center, Tokyo.
She was also awarded the Outstanding Performance Prize at the 48th Art Festival Tokyo-ten Exhibition 2022 held at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum. In 2020, her works are acquired by Deji Art Museum in China.
"Real，true world - it would be the memory of the world which could once exist or the appearance of the future that I have not seen yet."
"People who saw my artworks recognize the worlds which could exist countlessly and can feel an admiration or nostalgia for the bright and unfathomable extent of space which can be seen through the gap of those worlds, then they can open many doors of imagination." "Connecting people’s consciousness and sense, realization and recognition, I would like to create artworks which could catch the heat and sound which could not be noticed in the real world.
