Judith Kruger: MINGLED TERRAIN..
introduces recent collages, drawings, paintings, and sculptural objects. Through rooted, metaphoric abstraction and the employ of natural matter as art material, Judith Kruger addresses the interconnectivity of diverse environments and the significance of human-environment connectivity.
The collages have been compiled from a small sampling of over a decade of saved, experimental natural material tests. As discarded fragments that were housed in over-stuffed flat file drawers, they have become a significant index of her work trajectory. Thus, the decision to mend, join and juxtapose them into repurposed work seemed like a natural step towards furthering her dialogue on the importance of mingled terrains. The collage material has become catalytic in driving the formal decisions for making the paintings, drawings, and small sculptural objects: all being currently created specifically for this exhibition.
There will be a reception and gallery talk for the public with the artist on March 15 at 6:00 pm in the Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts Museum, 130 Memorial Drive, Spartanburg, SC 29303.
Judith Kruger's Abstract Alchemy 5-day workshop is currently available for registration through Cullowhee Mountain Arts, to be held on the Wofford Campus from March 19-23. A reception for the participants and private tour of the exhibition will take place on Sunday March 18th at 6:00pm.
Judith will be engaging with Wofford students through lecture, teaching and studio visits during her time at Wofford.
