Penelope Krebs: Seasons of Color, on view from July 13 - September 16, 2017. This will be the California-based artist's first major solo show in New York, after a long career of successful exhibitions throughout the United States.
Featuring new work painted between 2016 and 2017, the exhibition will include sixteen dynamic abstract compositions, titled accordingly with the months and seasons of the year, as well as an installation of seventy-two smaller works on paper. Demonstrative of an artistic career devoted to developing an oeuvre of hard-edged geometric abstractions, these new paintings solidify Krebs's place at the forefront of second-generation Color-Field painters. Her studies under such luminaries as John McCracken and James Hayward, pioneers of the Minimalist and California Light and Space movements, clearly influenced the direction of her work, but it is where her practice deviates from that of her mentors that shows her capacity for true innovation, and grants her work its iconic character.
Penelope Krebs is a recipient of the Pollock Krasner award.
