Katarina Caserman 
(Ljubljana, Slovenia, b. 1996)

Katarina Caserman’s paintings eschew objectivity and source material in favour of mediated imagery plucked from her own memories. Caserman responds to the needs of a painting, putting aside colour and composition theory in favour of instinct. The sinewy contours of Caserman’s compositions may at first glimpse seem corporeal yet they grapple with such abstract concepts as thought, memory and time, giving form to the immaterial.
