Event Details


10/05/2018 - 27/05/2018

VERNACULAR, an exhibition curated by Sabrina Calleja Jackson, illustrates a nostalgic walk through the current evidence of our country’s development.

These dreamy yet realistic oil paintings characterise a wish to stay in a better past and a direct sensitivity towards a questionable future; while exploring emotional links between the self, architecture and nostalgia.

Artist Bio:

Karen Caruana is a Malta-based fine artist and illustrator.

She has been studying Fine Art since 2001, works mainly with painting and is mostly intrigued by colour, form, facial expressions, and captured movement. Most of the time, she works through a painting with the aim to understand and indirectly tackle personal struggles along the whole process, using visual imagery as a ritual or confession to reach out to herself and sometimes others. 

Karen works as a full-time artist and is currently producing work for her first solo show.

Entrance to this event is free of charge.
