About The Artwork

I grew up around religious imagery and I'm always fascinated by the sometimes bizarre and violent themes of early Christian art work. This is my rendition of the iconograpy of Saint Agatha. She is historically shown with her breasts lopped off, holding them on a plate. Needless to say, the image of Saint Agatha has fallen out of favor with modern Christians and they usually do not realize that my painting is an accurate image of how Agatha was portrayed. Its also a self portrait as I worked from myself from life. As a personal comment, it is about the impossible role models women were given throughout history Virginity and motherhood being a woman's worth above all else.

Caitlin Karolczak intertwines the past with the present through the combination of age-old painting techniques with provocative contemporary themes. Karolczak's painting technique is informed by 17th and 18th century portraiture. She hauntingly captures beauty in the most unimaginable circumstances, especially to a 21st century viewer. Karolczak's work is internationally shown and collected. She resides in Minneapolis as a full time artist and gallery co-owner of Spinario. There she handles original artworks as diverse as 15th century engravings to paintings by Ray Parker, Zao Wou Ki, and Otto Dix. Her exposure to this unpredictable array of works has given her a broader understanding of art that enriches her own.
