Lee Krasner

Born in 1908, Lee Krasner was a contemporary artist who’s work has a strong connection to figurative painting because most, if not all, of her work holds an essence of figures. It is obvious in the work she has an interest in this way because it has come very naturally to her and the figurative painting may be unintentional within the work. There were strong personal influences in her life which was the push for her concepts. After the loss of her husband, her work was inspiration by the pain she was experiencing. The emotions are shown through her work are pain and anger also she has also incorporate nature into this portfolio. The Earth Green project incorporates nature and fleshy tones to portray the pain she was experiencing during this time.

This pieces of her work which I found most inspiring are the images below because when looking at the work you can begin to identify figures within the collage. The figures she has used are cut up life drawing works from her earlier studying. Along with the integrated colour she has produce very interesting pieces of art. The way the art draws the eyes of the audience cross the whole work by creating a busy compact artwork.
