20. 3. 2019–3. 5. 2019
The first overview exhibition of Katarina Toman Kracina’s work focuses on the painter's small and large-scale paintings on canvas, and her objects. Characterising her works are complex connections with the creation of a full spatial design. The artist's works preserve memories of individual events and fulfilled wishes.She leads a multifaceted life combining motherhood, partnership, work, household chores and art: what she observes and admires, what she creates, and what is subject to her restoration endeavours. Despite being a trained painter, she often incorporates sculpture and spatial installations into her paintings and drawings. Her exhibitions are typically ambient installations inviting spectators into her personal and emotional spaces.
