The Parklane Gallery in Kirkland presents Silent Voices – a painting exhibition by Irena Jablonski. Jablonski was born and raised in Poland, then worked as a structural engineer in South Africa. She moved to the United States in 1990s and started her artist education in California. Now based in the Seattle area, she has been represented by the Parklane Gallery for about a decade.
Jablonski has always been intrigued by the human vulnerability in coping with the surrounding world. Her dream-like paintings depict human beings caught unguarded in this dramatic and mysterious struggle. Her decades-long affair with oil paintings and charcoal pencils allows her to present this quiet yet disturbing exhibition.
