The small-scale gouache paintings by Paola Ciarska offer peeks inside private homes, with pop and fine art gems scattered throughout. The artist often depicts intimate moments, with personality present across the empty rooms. (Also presents are hints at her subjects being webcam performers or other Internet activity.)
“Paola’s works are often painted as a form of tribute to real rooms and the lives of those who live in them, visiting private houses to collect photographs of things cherished by their owners,” says IMT Gallery. “Intimate and beautifully crafted to depict complex juxtapositions of art, clothes, pop-culture and technology, they describe an explicitly human present: real homes connected through online networks.”
