Los Angeles-based Alexander Kroll is a painter’s painter. With a perceptive eye, he trusts his intuition and avoids planning his compositions. During his painting process, each moment is rigorously thought through and highly considered. In Sandy, Kroll reveals his process by painting in a manner that embraces the immediacy of mark-making and elegantly balancing speed with deliberation. Here, one can see bold brush strokes of red and green defining the overall composition that is layered with varying widths of spray paint, ultimately activating the whole canvas. The final work is an undeniably fresh composition, exhibiting a vibrancy that is skillfully orchestrated.
