Karolina Albricht’s paintings derive from a private imaginative space. Continuously, she’s negotiating new configurations of form, colour and surface. Painting, to her, is an attempt to generate an active space, an environment which can be perceived and responded to through our intellectual and physical faculties, through the sum of our senses.
