HAMILTON, OHIO, UNITED STATES, Feb. 2, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — American artist Jill Krutick will open a solo exhibition, Coral Beliefs, consisting of her ornate abstract paintings inspired by her passion for the underwater world at the Pyramid Hill are influenced by Sculpture Park & Museum on February 23, 2023. The exhibition runs through August 6, 2023. A reception will be held at the Ancient Sculpture Museum on June 9, 2023 from 5pm to 7pm to celebrate the exhibition. A special exhibition catalog will be produced to coincide with the premiere of Krutick’s work.
Krutick has cultivated a unique artistic technique in which she combines abstract expressionism and color field painting with a narrative component. Her approach to painting is influenced by her eco-adventures and underwater experiences as a certified diver. Krutick says, “Travelling through all the colors of a rainbow, ‘Coral Beliefs’ is not only a statement of the urgent need to conserve fragile coral reefs, but also a philosophical expression of my art practice, which is characterized by inclusivity, collaboration and networking.”
The centerpiece of the museum exhibit’s main gallery is a nearly 25-meter-long, 25-panel monumental work called “Coral Beliefs,” which captures both the exquisite beauty and the unprecedented difficulties faced by coral reefs around the world today. Krutick will be attending Pyramid Hill’s annual Art & Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 22, 2023 to showcase Coral Beliefs as part of a day of environmentally focused events, participatory art activities and other special exhibits.
Executive Director, Bryan W. Knicely adds, “We at Pyramid Hill are thrilled to feature Jill Krutick’s Coral Beliefs in our museum. Krutick has captured their extraordinary experiences in forms that fully immerse visitors in the underwater world of coral reefs. Bursting with life and meaning, Coral Beliefs is a remarkable collection of unparalleled colour, texture and value. We are sure that our visitors will enjoy the experience of this exhibition and the opportunities for discussion that follow.” Krutick will also exhibit 36 watercolors entitled “Contours of the Earth” which explore the post-apocalyptic imaginary shapes of the world after World War II and the effects of climate change Another painting of note is The Coral Reef, a 6 x 12 foot, six panel work that explodes with color and sculptural elements.
Interviews with Jill Krutick and requests to view images of the paintings featured in the solo exhibition can be arranged through the Museum’s Marketing Manager, Delaney French.
