Part window, part mirror, Karolina Adams’ drawings show us her thoughts, emotions, and reactions to them with relatable insight that may give viewers a better understanding of their own inner psychology. In a minimal color palette, Adams’ animated protagonist navigates a world of finely rendered symbols and metaphors, overcoming obstacles and making peace with external stimuli. Come to view the work, share in the journey, and realize that most of us are just doing the best we can.
