Karolina JabłońskaBORN 1991, Niedomice
A graduate of the Painting Faculty of the Academy of Fine Art in Krakow, her artistic critique extends the formal premises of neo-expressionism, mainly through a vivid palette, deformation, and dynamic compositions. One of Jabłońska’s characteristic motifs is the self-portrait – the artist herself appears, caked in mud, missing a tooth, holding a lemon or a murderous-looking housecat. The artist enjoys using mythological motifs and reinterpretations of classic compositions, yet the main theme of the artist’s work is violent emotions. The protagonists of these pictures laugh until they burst, stare deep in your eyes, or look about to pummel you unconscious.
The artist is a co-founder of Krakow’s Potencja Gallery, which she has created with Tomasz Kręcicki and Cyryl Polaczek.
