B. 1997, Rzeszów, Poland


Karolina Dworska is a UK based Contemporary Artist and a recent BA Fine Art Graduate from Goldsmiths, University of London. She was one of the artists selected for the 2021 Bloomberg New Contemporaries.


Her work delves into the subject matter of the in-between; the grey area between dream and reality, and fantasy spaces, balancing precariously between definitions. She also explores her migrant background within her work, having immigrated to the UK as a child from Bieszczady, Poland. Her multidisciplinary practice focuses on dreamscapes, in which things are not quite right, undefined and uncomfortable, explored through a variety of sculptural and textile mediums.
