Biography from Russell Kaplan Auctioneers:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

In the early to mid 1970s, Karin Jaroszynska's style was fundamentally influenced by the surrealistic images painted by her husband Tadeusz Jarosynski with whom she regularly collaborated and exhibited.  Having spent much of her life primarily as a mother and wife, it was only when she was in her 40s that Jaroszynska's own style matured. 

According to Esmé Berman, the artist made a series of large paintings in the late 1970s in which "she gave form to a unique community of mirror-image men and women, cloned from some doe-eyed, large-nosed, low-browed prototype of her remembering or dreaming".  These figures are startling for the ways in which they capture a sense of humanity - their flesh is truly visceral - but at the same time are distinctly otherworldly and caricatured.

Born in Helsinki, Jaroszynska was influenced by Scandinavian folk art as well as medieval scenes, but, interestingly, Berman also posits J. R. R. Tolkien's hobbits as potential inspirations for the characters in her paintings.
