Artist Statement

Resin varnish, collage on paper.

Many little fragments from different sources exist within these resin works, including natural materials, images from Kroner's drawing process, and elements appropriated from the works of other artists.

He integrates these fragments so they become like a river, carrying everything with it as it flows. The fragments are like particles of knowledge or memories being pulled along in our streams of consciousness—that is why he calls the works “Blackwater.”

The resin penetrates everything during the slow drying process. Sometimes the resin devours the fragments; sometimes it blackens them, like tattoos; sometimes the fragments seem to be suspended in the resin, as if swimming in the flood; always they are embedded. Within the three-dimensional ridges of the paper, the resin captures and reflects light. The ever-changing reflection creates an interplay of luminosity and shadow, expressed through line.

These are works that express ephemerality; although they are made of paper, they become like a brand new skin.
