Jill Krutick is a contemporary abstract expressionist whose paintings trace the artist’s joyful path of self-discovery and creative exploration. Using only texture, form, and color, the artist suggests the intense beauty and constant flux of nature: galaxies, skies, blossoms, and tides. Influenced by modern and contemporary masters such as Van Gogh, Monet, and Rothko, Krutick combines abstract expressionist gestures, impressionist luminosity, and personal symbols of change.
This piece features a panoramic-style orientation, using two horizontal panels as a diptych style composition to create an immersive experience in an enchanting realm. Using a variety of splashes, pigments, and marks, these combined techniques assemble abstract patterns within the landscape for the viewer to identify as hidden moments of flora, precipitation, or magic.
