Karen Gunderson’s all-black paintings of mountains in Tibet and constellations of night skies rest uneasy in various histories of painting. Monochrome and representational, they defy well rehearsed assumptions of the history of twentieth century abstraction, and engage with a broader concern for the ability of painting to represent subject matter that often remains invisible, such as concepts of essence and world history.
