Khara Oxier creates paintings that are easy to run from, easier to turn away than stand there and take it. Even fleeing, the art gets closer. The paintings hold some of our tales, show some of our secrets and still they leave a little room for the rest. Oxier´s works memorialize the mystery of the human condition, combining the act with the vision. Viewing the art in person quickly reveals a recording of the physical actions that make them, the scrapingly abrasive assault on the surface and hurried, hidden attempt to put it all together again with string and thread, spit and blood.
Khara Oxier holds a degree in Anthropology from Boise State University. She is represented in the Ioema Collecion as well as in private collections in Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Guatemala, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Puerto Rico, Switzerland and the US.
Oxier is self-taught within the arts and started to work professionally with her artistic expression in the beginning of 2010.
