Andrea Krupp

Geologic

POST weekend Saturday and Sunday Oct 8 and 9

Artist will present an "Artists Talk" on Saturday and again on Sunday, at 3:00 pm, both days. Title of the talk - "GEOLOGIC - Place, Time, Self and other predicaments."


Recent mixed media artwork by local artist, Andrea Krupp.

Influenced by the "language" of Icelandic place- its geology, climate, culture and history- Krupp’s imagery reaches beyond the depiction of landscape. Her introspective work embraces universal and human questions about Place, Self and Time. In this exhibition of collages and drawings, the Geologic, couched in a silent pre-human landscape, gets a voice.


"Through my creative process I seek to deepen my understanding of the where, when and why of my existence. Scientists have now officially gone on record to state that humanity has reached the end of the Holocene and entered into a new epoch – the Anthropocene – thereby acknowledging our impact on Earth's geology and systems. This term, and all that it implies, creates an urgent context for my thinking about the realities of the here and now."
