Karolina Albricht uses bold colours, shapes and marks to create semi-fictional narratives. Her work forms a line of enquiry into human nature by investigating myth and ritual of the past and present. Albricht is particularly interested in the experiece of duality and applies this to both formal and contextual aspects of her practice.

She moves in and out of abstraction, using heavy, textured shapes against gestural brushwork or quick lines against smooth flat planes. She allows the intended and intuitive to meet: the loose form with the geometric one, the abstract shape with the familiar one. The exact moment when two of the opposing forces meet injects an element of tension into her work. This is what then becomes a reoccuring, obsessive feeling or presence in her painting.
