Event Description

Larry Krone: Here I Am
April 20 – May 26, 2012
Opening Reception Friday, April 20, from 6-9 pm

The exhibition opens Friday, April 20, with an Opening Reception for the artist that evening from 6 – 9pm. The exhibition will run through May 26.

"Larry Krone Here I Am" presents new work by the artist, continuing his ongoing exploration of masculine identity, showmanship, craft, and collaboration. The major pieces in the exhibition are his three "Then and Now (Latch Hook Hay Bales)". These attempts at life-sized sculptural representations of hay bales were made using yarn found as remnants from other people's knitting and crochet projects. The colors are as close as possible to natural hay, but the palette is left largely to chance, creating a semi-accidental reference to pointillist and Impressionist painting, particularly Claude Monet's famous hay stack series. The yarn, found at thrift stores and senior centers, was all originally chosen by anonymous craftspeople based on their own needs, budget, and taste--partial skeins leftover from innumerable afghans, sweaters, and baby blankets. Gathered by Krone and painstakingly latch-hooked over a period of many months, the combination of histories as embodied in the yarn represents a collaboration of all of these
identities with Krone himself.

Also on view are some recent works by Krone including a reverse glass painting, a letterpress edition, Love is in the Air drawings, and a photographic self portrait depicting Krone in his kitchen surrounded by patchwork quilts and his latch hook hay bales, trying his best to reproduce Marilyn Monroe's famous nude calendar pose dressed only in his own Underpants of Many Colors and a cowboy hat.
