WARM MY HEART
"Mad was the last kid I saw and he was asleep. He was 3 months old and they put him in my arms and he stayed asleep and they put him in the bath and he stayed asleep and I thought he was narcoleptic or something. Then he opened his eyes and just stared at me for the longest time and I just stared at him and I started crying and he smiled. And it wasn’t that he smiled that he liked me, it was just that I hadn’t held children in my life and I was always considered so dark and I always had so many things that made me feel like maybe I shouldn’t be somebody’s mom because certainly the world has an opinion of me and I’m not so sure about myself and am I gonna be the best mom? So the fact that this little kid seemed at ease gave me the courage to feel like I could make him happy. And so we became a family right then." — Angelina Jolie
Karolina Zglobicka’s work explores the balance between meaning and explanation, vision and gesture, word and unspoken thought. She seeks to express that which is missed in everyday translation. Ambiguities, shadows, hidden pieces of reality, are all explored through use of reflections, distorted perspectives, and repetitive motifs. Collaging layers of colour and shape, marks and movements, past and future, and transforming the way she sees and interprets paint as a medium, Zglobicka seeks to create worlds from recontextualised emotive and visual associations.
