Biography from Hollis Taggart Galleries (Artists, R-Z):
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

International artist Karina Wisniewska redefines the art of painting in her extraordinary body of work that balances the organic with the geometric, and pulls at the polarities of stillness and movement. Using luminous color, aflame in radiant reds, rich oranges and penetrating blues, she delicately combines her paint with quartz sand to create lush layers of texture in her engaging, elegant monochrome paintings. Wisniewska’s artistic process is both concealed and revealed in her evocative geometric grids painted in shallow relief.
Wisniewska’s paintings are informed by the artist’s own musicality. An accomplished chamber musician and concert pianist, Wisniewska often “translates” favorite compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach and John Cage into visual art. The linear and gridded contsturctions create rythyms; the resulting rich tones and harmonies, advancing and receding, grant her paintings a distinct musicality and order that explore the mysteries of chance and intention.
Wisniewska has exhibited widely at galleries and art fairs around the world. Her work can be found in the collections of the Museum Abbatiale de Payerne, the Museum zu Allerheiligen, Schaffhausen (both Switzerland), and corporate collections including Credit Suisse, UBS, and VP Bank, Vaduz.
Before working as a visual artist, which she began in earnest in 2000, Wisniewska had a distinguished career as an award-winning musician. Trained at institutions including Salzburg’s Mozarteum (Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst), she recorded more than 10 albums and numerous performances for television and radio. Among her awards are the European Culture Prize, the Swiss Musician of the Year, and the inaugural prize of the Armand von Ernst Banquiers Foundation. She lives and works in Ennetbaden, Switzerland.
