Jolanta Caban is a born colourist. The search for colour, its intensity and saturation, is the main motive of the artist’s paintings. In her work we can find abstract solutions and her favourite subject of still life. These are arrangements of dishes, vases, flowers or abstract forms-objects. The striped arrangement is her favourite compositional solution. The forms in Jolanta Caban’s works are not literal, but they refer to reality in a very emotional and suggestive way. The painter uses her own expressive style. The works are painted widely, the paint used in large amounts often flows freely, creating meandering lines, colourful spots. The artist often uses putty. The structure of the painting pulsates with saturation of colour. The texture on the surface of the canvas is very characteristic for the artist’s painting. The painting is made of many layers, we can see the repainting, the successive movements of the brush and putty leave a tangible trace. Her paintings take on different colour schemes, there are hot works with a strong dominance of orange and red colours contrasting with dark graphic spots. The second path of exploration are muted paintings, pastel with a dominance of warm gray. The artist lives and works in Warsaw.
