(Born 1988) Originally from Poland, Karolina Zglobicka now lives and works in Valencia, Spain. Having moved from Poland to England and then to Spain, she found inspiration in exploring the theme of relocation and the changes that challenge the familiarity of the spaces we inhabit. Her journey has led her to contemplate things left behind and those that adapt to travel with us continuously. In her recent paintings, Zglobicka examines the physicality and meaning of objects that surround us. She places them in a reminiscent setup, isolating them from their natural surroundings to emphasize their influence on memories. Her focus is on the things we lose, misplace, discard, or treasure as souvenirs. The compositions in her paintings appear staged for performance, showcasing past events, everyday situations, or alternative scenarios that could have been but never happened. Viewers of her work are invited to engage in an interplay between chosen objects, feeling the tension between selective memory and the ubiquitous symbolism hidden behind figurative representation.

The context of the selected subject matter challenges the boundaries of familiarity and imagination projected onto what we see. Zglobicka draws her main inspiration from family photos and objects found on the streets of Valencia, infusing them with new histories through her artistic reinterpretation. These objects, often seemingly insignificant, become collected pieces that create an allusive link between composition and the essential nature of the memories they evoke. The way paint is applied to canvas in her works prompts viewers to contemplate time, capturing its fluidity and revealing the consequences of allowing it to run freely. Through the repetition of layers and motifs, correlation of presented figures, and the disappearance of definite shapes and meanings, the artist seizes the opportunity to experiment within the history of figurative painting and question the boundaries of theoretical descriptions of practice.
