The Evolution of Coastlines: A Climate Change Reflection

5th March – 9:00 am - 30th March – 5:30 pm


Visual artist Karolina Krzynowek draws inspiration from the Irish landscape to create breath taking artwork using various media. Her pieces, soft yet dynamic, forge connections to nature that resonate with observers. Specially selected paintings for this exhibition promise to instil a sense of connection to the natural world.

Funded in 2023 by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Karolina enriches the coastal artistic heritage of the region with a new exhibition titled ‘The Evolution of Coastlines’.

From rugged cliffs to serene shores, the paintings transport viewers to the heart of Northern Ireland’s coastal splendour. Vivid hues and intricate brushwork breathe life into scenes of rocky outcrops, expansive seascapes, and intricate tidal pools, while subtly hinting at the urgent environmental challenges facing these regions.

The exhibition invites contemplation and dialogue about the interplay between humanity and the natural world, encouraging viewers to reflect on their relationship with the environment. The collaborative nature of the artistic process fosters a sense of community and shared stewardship.

Through ‘The Evolution of Coastlines’, Karolina showcases the mastery of watercolour and oil mediums, offering a poignant commentary on the urgency of addressing climate change. Ultimately, the exhibition serves as a call to action, inspiring viewers to appreciate, protect, and preserve the fragile beauty of Northern Ireland’s sea coast for future generations.

Each piece is infused with imagery and symbolism that reflect her deep connection to the natural world.
