Ella Kruglyanskaya paints large-scale, cartoonish vignettes featuring exuberant, full-figured women and their fashion accessories. Characterized by splashy colors and patterns, her paintings depict women in revealing clothes, engaged in leisure activities or absurdist scenarios, such as Untitled (2010), in which a woman in high heels riding a small horse is attacked by a crocodile. “I’m interested in pictorial events that are not narrative but visual and sometimes aspire to an unspoken punch line,” she has said. “The figure functions as the vessel and the space onto which the events of the painting occur.” Kruglyanskaya has produced commissions for the windows of Barney’s in New York, and her work has been compared to that of R. Crumb, Sonia Delaunay, and Lyubov Popova.
