Gosha Karpowicz uses oil and watercolor to create abstract expressionist works. Translucent layering of colors is a play of light and darkness, emanating glow and vibrancy. In a world where stillness is rare, they are an invitation to pause. They rely on the moments of quietude, contemplating the interactions of color fields and illuminating the relationship of spaces in between them.
Gosha Karpowicz has pursued her commitment to art both inside and outside the studio. Her journey has been physical and metaphysical, clearly illuminating her paintings.
At a young age, she was compelled to leave her home country of Poland, then part of the Communist bloc, to live and paint where freedom of expression was encouraged and respected. When Karpowicz arrived in the United States as a political refugee, she experienced different genres of art for the first time, graduating from Parsons School of Design with a clear way forward.
Since then, her paintings have evolved and transformed as she continues to explore her vision and aesthetic in the post-modern world embracing color field , minimalism, creating her own vision out of the authentic meanings of the abstract art. Gosha Karpowicz exhibited at the United States Hopper House, Equity Gallery, amongst many others; her work can be found in the permanent collection of the museum of the contemporary art Elektrownia in Poland. She currently lives and works in New York City, United States.
To Gosha, Art is a way of being which touches our most authentic self… It creates beauty out of a search for truth… Art makes invisible visible… Through Art we share our humanness, ultimately the viewer feels seen, reflecting upon their own experience… Art is a way to contemplate and related to life…
