Barbara Krupp’s new series is titled “Interconnection.” The interconnectedness of people and events is one of history’s most fascinating topics and is becoming more evident daily. As information, trade, travel, and communication become stronger, faster and more ubiquitous, it has a growing impact worldwide. We are learning the hard way that such an impact is not always beneficial.
As Henri Matisse and Joan Miro did, Barbara’s new work combines curvilinear forms with biomorphic shapes – those shapes which evoke the living forms of plants and animals. A result is a unique form of beauty built on color and fluidity. Barbara, a former X-ray technician with a background in science and a love of gardening, combines her knowledge of the body with her love of nature to produce art that grows out of the interconnections of these two very distinct forms.
Barbara sees a future where her paintings will become the basis for video pieces, as her changing direction both reflects and motivates her inward acceleration.
