STATEMENT

Karolina Zglobicka

My work is about layering again and again.

Constant process of removing, and adding to the composition erratically, allows me to freely explore the contradictions of materiality and colour within painting along with the balance between meaning and explanation, vision and gesture, word and unspoken thought.
With visible liquidity in the way in which the paint is applied to canvas, I often use white as a neutralising aspect to the works – a personal form of eradicating what is deemed unsatisfactory or unnecessary, juxtaposing its use as a base, starting point, main element of composition and medium to alter the presence of colour.

My work is about layering again and again.

Accumulated materials and mediums, assumptions and information create multi layered definition of my own understanding of painting, within the recognized along with researched barriers, separating abstract from figurative or conceptual aspects of work. I am trying to question who is a painter, who is a viewer and who is an accompaniment in an endless performance of creativity in the context of contemporary painting scene, being an art student, being a student of art, being a foreigner.

My work is about 'again' and again, layered.
