A Portfolio: Karolina Jabłońska

Must read

One of our favorite painters we learned about this year is the works of Karolina Jabłońska, the subject of today’s A Portfolio. The Krakow-based painter had works in the Art Basel Miami Beach fair a few weeks back, which stood out amongst the large swaths of paintings. 

From Esther Schipper Gallery, “Karolina Jabłońska, born 1991 in Niedomice. Lives and works in Kraków.

“Jabłońska studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków (2010—2015). Residencies and fellowships include Scholarship in Vysoká škola uměleckoprůmyslová v Praze UMPRUM (2014—2015), LIA Programme Residency, Spinnerei Leipzig (2018), Fern Residency, Brussels (2021), Fores Project Residency, London (2022).

“Deeply felt and keenly observed, Karolina Jabłońska’s paintings often depict everyday situations that capture the awkwardness of certain common activities. As the artist has put it, “the paintings come from small sensory and emotional impressions.” Yet, the personal is also political: metaphors for emotional states, inherent in these paintings are references to the role of women, the existential threat to their bodies and restrictions imposed by political realities.”
