Within the Artists-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host the artist Kalina Horon. Born in 1992 in Poland, Horon holds a MFA Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. In her current painting practice, Kalina discovers the possibilities of an abstract visual language, based on free improvisation. She uses direct forms and colors to achieve a visual power that is often seen in children's drawings, gestural abstraction, cave paintings or graffiti. Deriving from her knowledge about rules of composition and theory of colour combination, she creates paintings in which all forms correspond with each other, infect each other, to build a final, perfectly balanced structure and aesthetically influence the viewer. Kalina currently lives and works in Vienna and will be staying in Studio Amarillo during January 2023.
