Touch Art Gallery is pleased to present the new works by Paul Kroner on May 19 – June 16th. The opening reception is Friday June 6th from 5 to 8 PM. The exhibition featuring oil painting and sculpture.
At the heart of my work is a desire to find the intersection of art and design, where expression and visual narrative are considered in context of structure and composition; where the relationship of shape, color, line and mark making work in harmony to communicate, guide, and engage the viewer in a unique experience. As I evolve and my focus shifts to creating and solving my own artistic challenges I still bring the sensibility I practice as a graphic designer trained to solve each new problem in a unique way. Currently my work is focused primarily on figurative work in oil painting and sculpture.
For me the process of creation is as important as the final outcome. How an armature is built, what the initial drawings reveal, how the underlying structure of a painting guides you through the work, are all glimpses into the thinking of the artist. This is where the magic exists and where, as a viewer, you can connect with the humanity of the artist which makes a piece of work come to life.
