"Denmark Dawn" Urban Metal Art
This piece is HUGE. It spans 3 feet by 2 feet. It is oil on aluminum. This piece has four black boards on each side, creating a rustic "framelike" effect. It is extremely heavy.
Rich, Bold, and Fantastic! This piece is 36” x 24”. There are amazing scratches throughout this piece.
As with all my metal paintings, nail and hammer marks are retained. This painting will change in different lighting due to the reflective qualities of the metal underneath. This painting is wired and ready to hang. The copper "eyes" are placed in such a way that the painting may be rewired to hang horizontally--or even upside down. Each copper eye has a felt backing to protect your wall. The painting is signed and dated on the back.
My work is titled based on current personal experience and the look of a piece. When a painting is purchased, I reveal the explanation of title to the owner. We are the only ones who have this information, unless the owner decides to reveal it. In this way, the owner and I have a personal connection through the painting. The purchaser will receive a Certificate of Authenticity and an Explanation of Title.

My name is Karina Keri-Matuszak. I specialize in Copper Art. Copper Art is very unusual. It has a shimmering stained glass feel, but is much more urban and rough. It is very rustic, and retains hammer marks and nails. Copper Art takes on a completely different look based on the lighting and the reflective quality of the copper. It almost seems to move and change. I'm sure you will enjoy this art as much as I enjoyed creating it!
Karina studied art at the American College for the Applied Arts in the U.S. and London in the early 1990s. After designing wedding gowns for 7 years, she now uses her textile skills to work with the copper. She exhibits her work all over the country and sells online.
INVEST NOW------VALUE INCREASING! I am teaming up with Modern Danish, one of the top 5 sink and fixture companies in the country, to create a line of complimentary pieces which accentuate their contemporary style. The value of my art will be increasing. Invest now while the time is right!
