Karolina Albricht aims to expose aspects of human nature by focusing on particular events, experiences and subjects. Her empirical approach employs various notions of metaphysics and anthropology and forms a constant inquiry. The paintings resonate as a human experience of duality: survival and self-destruction, nature and civilization, dream and reality, subjectivity and objectivity, the profound and the banal.

Albricht groups her works into thematic series. The narrative is often experimental and balances abstraction and representation. Her approach is synthetic, the preparatory sketches are often processed in Photoshop and then re-worked or cut out. A vital part of her work is experimenting with the texture, viscosity and paint application.

She revisits and analyses moments, objects and interactions of colours and shapes and translates them into planes, marks, gestures often incorporating geometrical figures/lines and elements of collage.
