Karen Kilimnik's World Inhabits the Ballet De L'Opera

Due to the gracious invitation from 303 Gallery in NYC, I was invited to the cocktail for the artist Karen Kilimnik then a night at the Ballet De L'Opera, PHEDRE choregraphed by Serge Lifar and PSYCHE choregraphed by Alexei Ratmansky. Karen Kilimnik's artwork was  used in the set design for the PSYCHE ballet.
I found Kilimnik's art romantic yet haunting. It is rare when I feel drawn to an artist's sensitivity.   I am curious to learn more about her short films and installations. But it is her dark awkward paintings that pull me into her world.
