Katarzyna Karpowicz: Interviews
I still believe in happy endings because my life is one big happy ending after disasters. I know, the world has gone crazy: we face anxiety every day because of the war in Ukraine, we are weighed down by the vision of climate catastrophe, we fear for our material existence, and yet I believe deeply, in light, I believe in art.
In a conversation with the artist, art critic Bogusław Deptuła deconstructs her paintings, asking simple questions: what is a mirror, what is a mask, what is a circus?
I can collect my thoughts under water
Painting a man from nature and painting his essence is a completely different story. It’s not important what you see, but what you know about the person.
Extracting a painting
I was brought up in the atelier of Olga Boznańska. The first 12 years of my life I spent in the beautiful and large atelier at 21/7 Piłsudzkiego Street, which at Olga’s time was Wolska Street. On the one side we had the Planty Park and on the other one there was the Kościuszko Mound in the distance, surrounded by Wolski Forest.
