Karen Waiksnis DiSorbo

Karen Waiksnis DiSorbo was born in Connecticut, grew up in South Florida and has currently lived in Las Vegas since 1994.

Karen has worked in a creative capacity throughout her life. Being creative is a part of her being. At this time, as an artist, Karen is expressing her interpretation of the complexity of time in a visual. Time is valuable to everyone for various reasons. “For everything there is a season, a time for every purpose”. The Tyme Series is meant to accomplish thought provocation regarding an individual’s life of the moments of time in their lives…moments that are captured in an instant.

In my Tyme Series, I am trying to express in the visual of clocks that a moment is a segment of a story that is very individual and personal. It is as subjective to an individual as art. Each moment, a person's life is reflected in time….an increment of life. Our own personal moment. The definition of time is “the system of those sequential relations that any event has to any other, as past, present, or future; indefinite and continuous duration regarded as that in which events succeed one another.” I am correlating the Tyme Series to Art in a whole spectrum .

The Tyme Series represents the phenomenon of the change of time. There is so much about time…time moves slow, time is slipping by, chasing time, time flies, time stands still…It means that time is always moving and is interpreted by the individual, such as, the way that art is interpreted. It is a very individual experience. It is of the moment….It evokes an interaction…a communication to interact with another being or object. It stimulates an interaction of a moment. A multitude of one's view of time….depending on the situation at hand. Time will stand still, it will speed by…time is a word that can be a noun as well as an action.

“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, A time to die; A time to plant, A time to reap; A time to die, A time to heal; A time to break down, A time to build up; A time to weep, A time to laugh; A time to mourn, and A time to dance; A time to cast away stones, A time to gather stones; A time to embrace, A time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, and A time to lose; A time to keep, and A time to throw away; A time to tear, and A time to sew; A time to keep silent, A time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; A time of peace and a time of war.”

Karen's hope is, that these images evoke an emotion as well as an idea that provoke a thought that is personal. A hope that it simulates emotion and a desire to create what makes you feel alive! Please jump into the moment of Tyme.
