For this years second edition of self-directed residency, BAG ArtCamp has invited Katarzyna Roman to use one of our studios for the period of one month in November 2017. She will have the view of the harbour and be able to watch and record the shipping activity, distant islands, city life and maybe a seagull or two. Katarzyna Roman is a printmaker, illustrator and graphic designer, who graduated with a Master in Printmaking from the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław, Poland in 2016.
”In all of my artworks, I use a large number of dots. Mastering the intricate technique allows me to focus on important details which build the whole picture. I am very interested in combining elements of two or more seemingly unrelated worlds – animals, plants and architecture.
During my BAG ArtCamp residency I would like to create a serie of illustrations where elements of Bergen’s architecture interlace with fauna-floristic motives. To achieve that I would love to let myself be inspired by the sea, forests and seven mountains surrounding the city”.
