Karolina Albricht (b. Krakow, Poland) is a painter working and living in London. She graduated with an MA from The Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow in 2008. Before that, she completed Socrates-Erasmus at ArtEZ Institute of Fine Arts in Arnhem, the Netherlands in 2007. In 2020 she finished Turps Studio Programme in London. Her recent solo exhibitions include 16 Branches High at Studio West (London, UK) and OFF-BEAT at JGM Gallery (London, UK). Her recent group exhibitions include Close Corners at Turps Gallery, Studio Response: 03 at Saatchi Gallery (London, UK), Ingram Prize at Unit 3 Gallery (London, UK), A Faint Ground at Hilbert Raum (Berlin, Germany) and Generous Space at Hastings Contemporary (Hastings, UK). Albricht was shortlisted for the Contemporary British Painting Prize, Ingram Prize, RA Summer Exhibition, and APT & Fenton Arts Trust Award amongst others. Her work is in private collections in the UK, Europe and the USA.

Karolina Albricht sees painting as an opening, stretching beyond optical perception. Its process is driven by curiosity – a desire to see what is possible, and a desire to search and maintain this sense of potentiality. Her work probes the reciprocity of colour, shape, line and texture, and their responsiveness to one another and the painting’s edges. Albricht attempts to generate an active space, a visual environment which can be perceived and responded to through one’s intellectual and physical faculties, through the sum of one’s senses. She is interested in the interrelation of the body, its movement, and the space it occupies, and the transference of these relationships to the pictorial field. What she is searching for in painting is a dislocation – a glimpse of a possibility, the very edge of seeing and unseeing.
