In her body of work titled, “Portals to Kairos,” Wróbel created portals into imagined worlds, suspended in time. These paintings are inspired by what the mind experiences during meditation, prayer and “relaxed attentiveness,” drawing from images of neural networks and by the idea of “whole brain connectivity,” when information flows freely. Painting for Wróbel is a moving meditation, a way to ignite this mode of being and enter into kairos, or the “time in between.” Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning “the supreme moment.”
Through purposeful intention and focused attention in the studio, time warps into an incredible fullness. It blossoms, quite literally, into this alternate space Wróbel articulates as a liminal realm; neither above nor below our physical reality, but rather, within it. Wróbel hopes her paintings can serve as portals for the viewer to enter into their own kairos, a time and place of sublime infinity and millisecond eternities.
