About



About

Karen Miranda Abel is a Canadian interdisciplinary artist based in Toronto. Concerned with ephemera and slow art processes, Abel’s field studies and site-sensitive elemental installations approach art as environment and process, rather than object or commodity. The interplay of light and spatial relationships are tools and collaborators in Abel’s research-intensive practice and she ultimately views her works as conceptual gardens cultivated in time and place.

Abel’s works include public art gardens and community-based ecological projects produced with the Ontario Science Centre and Walpole Island First Nation. She received the 2013 Ontario Association of Landscape Architects/GROUND Award for Geogarden {A subterranean symphony in C}, a landscape-themed project about geological time and the musicality of natural processes. In 2014, she was the recipient of the Jury’s Choice Award and a second Ontario Association of Landscape Architects/GROUND Award for Vernal Pool, a participatory project about water, place and precipitation.

Abel holds an interdisciplinary Master in Environmental Studies from York University in Fine Art, Cultural Production and Environmental Art Practice.
