Katarzyna Adamek-Chase (1980)

Graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków at the Faculty of Graphic Arts. Received her diploma in 2005 under the guidance of profesor Jerzy Kucia. In 2004, she completed a six-month scholarship at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Universitat Politècnica de València in Spain. 

In her work to date she wanders from places to humans. The artist – observer, she looks at places carefully and from distance – her paintings feature cities, gardens, urban tissue, and then she turns towards the landscape and paints balanced, spatially and air-filled representations of nature. We will not see people here, and the perspective from which we look at those places – habitats gives the impression of separation, as if we were looking at them from afar, as if we were strangers from another world. In her latest series PLANETARIUM and BODY we notice a turn of the painter’s attention towards people and the human figure.

Katarzyna is a painter, graphic designer, illustrator and photographer.
