Karina Seljak’s paper-based artworks use soft pastels to explore ephemeral expressions of the natural world. The ever-shifting drama played out between light and landscape is at the heart of Seljak’s current artistic practice, as she holds the paradox of magnificence and peace found within transience. Karina also works with textiles, transforming her drawings into closed-loop, recycled wool blankets for Seljak Brand, established in 2015, of which she is Co-founder & Creative Director. She also works with plant-dyed textiles, Shibori folding, patchwork and draping techniques, and performative installation. Living and working on the Sunshine Coast, Karina holds a double degree in Fine Arts Fashion and Business Advertising at Queensland University of Technology (2011).
