Karolina Jabłońska is fascinated by human nature. But not by the softness or candidness we can find in prairies houses or fantasy worlds full of unicorns and rainbows. Instead, she’s interested in the dark sides of our personalities, unfiltered and without sweetened emotions, representing the complexity of tortured minds through dark colours and painful expressions. She thinks simple things are, in general, boring, and that’s why she prefers to work with uneasy emotions. “Life isn’t as simple and colourful as we see on social media. It also consists of pain and struggling with different kinds of difficulties. Graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow (Poland) five years ago, the artist confesses she has loved art since she can remember, something we recognize in her encyclopedic knowledge full of references ranging from the great masters of the 18th century like Tiziano to contemporary artists such as Maria Lassnig or Victor Man. She doesn’t forget either about the female artists that have been undervalued for years, revindicating somehow the brilliant work that women artists have developed throughout history.
