Caroline Zilinsky survey exhibition on show at University Gallery, Newcastle University—28 Feb - 20 Apr

26 February 2024

Caroline Zilinsky belongs in a time other than now; her erudite artistic bluntness somehow belongs in the great feasting halls of Nordic mythology rather than the white-walled boxes of the contemporary art world. Zilinsky is the incarnation of a Seeress - a woman gifted in the dark arts who can decipher the present and foretell the future. The artist’s gift is awareness and the courage to paint the uncomfortable.

Throughout her career, she has challenged societal indoctrination and stupidity with an obsessive observation of humanity and the media. Her fortress bedroom studio – is a bastion of artistic truth. The paintings emanating from a place of darkness lead us to the light through her uniquely beautiful, skewed realism. The mirror she places in front of us is a powerful reminder that art is much more than just about liking things.

On show 28 Feb - 20 April
