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.
