She thinks simple things are, in general, boring, and that’s why she prefers to work with uneasy emotions. “Life isn’t as simple and colourful as we see on social media. It also consists of pain and struggling with different kinds of difficulties. As an artist, I observe the world in a critical way and I draw from that place. The most fascinating things for me are hard feelings, uneasy things,” she explains.
Graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow (Poland) five years ago, the artist confesses she has loved art since she can remember, something we recognize in her encyclopedic knowledge full of references ranging from the great masters of the 18th century like Tiziano to contemporary artists such as Maria Lassnig or Victor Man. She doesn’t forget either about the female artists that have been undervalued for years, revindicating somehow the brilliant work that women artists have developed throughout history.
Jablonska lives and works in Krakow, where she’s cofounded Potencja Gallery collective, a platform where she’s developing different projects and activities that gives her the opportunity to express herself in other disciplines. She also runs an independent space in Krakow that invites young artists to promote and showcase their work.
