Karolina Albricht

(b 1983Poland. Lives and works in London)

Karolina Albricht’s paintings come from a private imaginative space. Her work is rooted in figuration but make use of abstract language in which a generative force of space, time, movement and feeling meet on their own terms.

She often works on the floor of her studio, which enables her to approach the collaging and painting process from different angles. As such, her work becomes a part of the studio, absorbing debris from older works, rags and scraps of canvas. She constantly reviews her materials, reaching for alternative elements that can expand her paintings. This way of working is an amplification of her collages on paper. Her sketches regularly become works in their own right.
