Karen LaMonte is an American artist whose works include sculpture, drawing, print making and site specific installation. Her art explores themes of presence and absence, beauty and ephemerality, through the physicality of the human body and its environment. Floating World developed from LaMonte’s residency in Kyoto, Japan, where she studied all aspects of the kimono—from weaving and construction, to ceremonial function and historic meaning.
