Lives and works in Philadelphia, PA
Born in 1995, Exene Karros lives and works in Philadelphia. She received a BFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2018. Since graduating Karros has participated in group exhibitions throughout New York, New England, Baltimore, and Miami, as well as recent solo and two-person shows at Whaam! in New York City and Airfield Art in Kingston. Her work examines the big stuff — Life, Death, God and the Internet. In her recent paintings she maps out ubiquitous yet specific imagery and literally draws connections between these themes. They are equal parts dogmatic and curious — each painting answering a question before it asks one.
