Penelope Krebs

Penelope Krebs’ works are visually enticing, yet free of connotations. Krebs manipulates light with the use of color, creating a structure that allows for abstraction to occur. A consummate craftsperson, Krebs hand grids her oil paint to ensure a flatness of surface. Colors are shapes, with no point of reference outside of the painting. Continuing the work of Josef Albers and The Washington Color School, Krebs explores chromatic interactions creating a moment of individual perception.
