Katrina Jurjans: A Journey into Dreamlike Narratives

Katrina Jurjans’ artwork delves deep into the realms of emotional and physical spaces, brilliantly bringing her female subjects to life through dense layering of patterns and colors. Her unique style, which intertwines elements of magical realism, explores themes of memory, transition, and the inherent dichotomies of life. Each piece in “hence living, hence magical” reflects her profound engagement with emotional narratives and boundaries—spatial, temporal, and bodily.

Jurjans, primarily a painter, has recently expanded her artistic repertoire to include installations. This exhibition will feature a selection of her mesmerizing acrylic on canvas paintings alongside a site-specific installation, offering viewers an immersive experience into her dream-like world.
