Submission Painting Editor Picks

Natalia Wróbel Artwork

In my paintings, I create portals into liminal realms beyond our physical world. I reference ancient architecture, elements from nature, and neural networks to elicit imagined, meditative pseudo-landscapes. I am deeply inspired by mindfulness and the gravity underlying simple, everyday moments and am fascinated by quantum physics as the groundwork for universal truths and a proposed proof of the interconnectedness of all things. My work examines this coexistence of opposing forces as a metaphor for the endurance and adaptability of the human spirit. Painting for me is a moving meditation, a way to enter ‘kairos,’ or the “time in between." I dive into this sublime flow state of suspended time, also referred to as the "supreme moment", to translate my boundless kinetic energy into the canvas.
