  • About the work

TECHNIQUE: PUNCHED PRINT, LACQUER, DRIED BIRCHBARK AND FOIL, FOLDING.

In his "Snow" series, Harald Kröner expands his abstract visual language in nuanced, poetic ways by combining new materials with time-tested techniques.

Dried fish skin, which is representative of animal life, and birchbark, which is representative of plant life, have been added to the printed materials he has long used as collage elements. Just as the appropriated photos and literary snippets in Kröner's work speak to the constructed reality that always follows him, these natural materials speak to an ever present ecological influence. Together they evoke a connection between nature and the human-made world.

Folding and "punching-out" are the techniques that define the "Snow" series. The folds replace handmade marks, adding a linear presence that is also sculptural and intimate--an inner space of contemplation within the image. The punch-outs--circles dissected from printed matter using cutting tools of different diameters--speak to the idea of uniqueness within uniformity, a concept integral to nature and ever present in Kröner's oeuvre.

Sold Framed: 35 x 50 cm - maple spacer frame.


About the Artist

1962 , Germany

Harald Kröner is a German artist who could be described as "paper artist", producing essentially works on paper and collages. His work involves also public installations. He lives and works in Pforzheim (Germany).
 

Education

Harald Kröner studied at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design with Rudolf Schoofs where he graduated in 1990.

Technique

Harald Kröner works thoroughly with paper, of which he is a notorious collector, whether it be artist paper, printed sheets, or papers collected in his daily life, transforming them into drawings and collages.

His works are made predominantly with coloured ink, but stain, lacquer, spray or enamel can sometimes be used in the creation process.

Lines, very present on his artworks, can be the result of a pencil stroke, a cut, the edge of a torn paper, dripping ink or the borders of collaged paper underneath his paintings.

Chance plays an important role in his work, which explores the limit between hazard and control, order and chaos.


Inspiration

Harald Kröner's work is very much about perception and the transition between the visible and the invisible, where the colour influences and tints the drawing, where the line evolves into a rhythm or music, where the complex and surprising combination of elements create an harmony only observable by the viewer.

Reminiscence of Asian traditions also transpires in Kröner's work with the use of ink suggesting spontaneity and freedom together with rigor and concision.

Languages, fonts and literature are also an important source of inspiration for him, especially in his public installations.
 

Collections

His work is featured in various German public collections as well as international private collections in Germany, Switzerland, France, Australia and USA.


Exhibitions

Harald Kröner has widely and mainly exhibited in Germany in solo and group exhibitions. He has also taken part to various art fairs including Drawing Now in Paris and the Korean International Art Fair.
