Artist Statement

 My Delineation series features abstract grid-based works in acrylic -- on paper and panel -- that occupy a middle ground between painting and drawing. In some of the Delineation pieces on paper, an accumulation of colored lines coalesce into larger shapes, which are themselves transformed by underlying layers of pigment. In others,bowed lines float atop an understated painterly ground. The Delineation panels are built up incrementally with thick swaths, splotches and drips of candy colored paint. When the panels are subsequently sanded down, many layers merge into a single seductive surface, punctuated by a delicate curvilinear grid. 

I work on paper and on panels with a variety of media -- acrylic, crayon, gouache, graphite and Xerox transfer - to create richly colored, layered and patterned surfaces. Using a combination of diverse images, I employ forms with multiple associations to suggest a constellation of meanings. These include geometric figures, organic forms derived from natural structures, and forms that originate in the artifacts and architectures of antiquity. I have a longstanding interest in the structural systems of language  (musical, mathematical and spoken), nature (visible and molecular) and culture (architecture and artifact). I’ve always loved Chinese art and some of the vessel forms I’ve worked with derive from Chinese ceramics and architecture.

Curator Miriam Seidel wrote of Anne Krinsky’s work in the 2007 show Finish/Line at the Borowsky Gallery in Philadelphia:

 

Anne Krinsky has developed a way of working informed by grid compostion, with subtle geometries inflected by recognizable imagery. Her found images of flowers and birds, with their delicately drawn lines, hover like daydreams in their fields of color. Lines also define some of the faceted shapes, leading to unexpected optical reversals from line to plane and back again.
