Karolina Albricht's paintings derive from a private imaginative space. Narratives unravel by referencing personal and universal mythologies and rituals. The use of colour and handling of the paint create overlapping layers of meanings and are central to her practice. The painterly language is directed towards escaping and reducing the object. Each painting is composed by shapes inhabited by various characters, which become alive and interact with each other in different combinations. Often reoccuring, these shapes form a personal code inviting the viewer in while withdrawing from providing clear answers.
