Caren Garfen is a London based artist specialising in textiles and meticulous hand stitching creating carefully considered pieces with profound messages. She is an award-winning practitioner who has established an international reputation for her accessible yet challenging issue-based art. Her work has been exhibited widely in the UK and Europe, as well as in the USA, Japan, Canada, and Australia, and can be found in public and private collections.
Caren carries out intensive research seeking out commonplace objects which become potent devices when placed side by side with her handwork. She is currently studying the Holocaust and examining the shattering rise in antisemitism in the 21st century.
