Karolina Albricht’s empirical approach employs various notions of metaphysics and forms a constant enquiry into human nature. Her work filters particular events and subjects and resonates as a human experience of duality: dream and reality, profound and banal, subjective and objective. This duality applies to both formal and narrative aspects of her practice. Albricht moves in and out of abstraction, using its elements while still referencing the world. The exact moment where two of the opposing forces meet injects an element of tension into her work. This is what then becomes a reoccurring, obsessive feeling or presence in her painting.

The content is often formed by experimentation of texture, viscosity and paint application. Albricht analyses interactions of colours and shapes and translates them into planes, marks and gestures often contrasting them with geometric forms and allowing the intended and intuitive to meet.
