Much like an ice skater, this Swirl piece uses marks that glide and dance across the canvas. The balance between spontaneity and choreography as the movements take place is what creates interest in the dance and excitement in the adventure.
This painting can be hung vertically or horizontally.
The Swirl Series: The Swirl series grew from Krutick’s interests in creating movement with large gestures on a canvas. The method begins by applying thick layers of oil or acrylic paint into the canvas with dramatic motions. Once applied, the paint is given time to dry. Angles and shapes are then carved and inscribed into the layers using a palette knife, driving the narrative of the piece. Inspired by childhood doodles and her experience in conducting, the Swirl series is an evolution from a playful, musical background into a visual way to communicate rhythmic, lyrical stories.
