Katarzyna Adamiak - Jasnikowska

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Katarzyna Adamiak - Jasnikowska


Katarzyna Adamiak - Jaƛnikowska is a contemporary realistic painter who works using the traditional oil technique. In her art she concentrates on the portrait as trying to touch and express an immaterial and spiritual side hidden in the human's face and look. The artist creates stirring portraits, in which light builds a toned mood and is also an important imperative for her.

Katarzyna always takes up the theme of self-portrait. It comes from a strong need of observing herself and changes which occur in her. For the very painter this is a way of looking into her own inner world, saving the life, its fleetingness. The space depicted in the painter's paintings is not a purely realistic convention. We can also find in it a rich metaphorical world, full of atmosphere of mystery and ambiguity. She was finalist in many international competitions like “14th Art Renew Center” or  „5th and 7th Modportrait”. She lives and works in Legnica, Poland.
