Caitlin Karolczak - Figural Painter


Caitlin Karolczak paints figures from vintage medical photos and deathbed portraits. She sees her paintings as a way to give the subjects, typically people ostracized for their medical conditions, back their dignity. Do you think she accomplishes this? Do you believe it is possible to create something beautiful out of something that is typically considered repulsive?

Find an image of something that is traditionally considered grotesque, and redraw or paint it in a way that you feel makes it beautiful.
