Sketch 10, drawing on paper, 14x12

Christopher Kroehler

Each of my paintings tells a story through my playful cast of characters. They play at form, color, and image; experiments of expression which read beneath the surface. I developed a method of dimensional painting, which utilizes the transparent quality of glass by applying paint to both the outer and inner surfaces, as well as the canvas backing. As a result, light plays a major role in the work by casting shadows onto the canvas. In the end, the effect is the incorporation of several separate surfaces into a cohesive and dimensional whole.
