Installation Information

Kroll paints personal refuges and interior landscapes: places to visit for solace and sanctuary. He tries to create a connection, however fleeting, between the viewer and the power of landscape, the web of life and the idea of nature itself. Kroll thinks about the natural world as a past home, once abandoned and forgotten, rather than as an expendable resource; it is now the subject of our longing and our dreams. Increasingly, what remains is an idea or memory of nature, rather than nature itself. His paintings are also about contrast: light and dark, movement and stillness, civilization and wilderness. He is represented locally by Robischon Gallery.
