Internationally known for his published contemporary realist painting, Todd Krasovetz’s soft abstract expressionistic and contemporary art forge new artistic territories evoking the power, tempo and tonal complexity of musical composition. Born of a spontaneous process very close to Pollock’s ‘action painting’ which Krasovetz describes as ‘event painting,’ these bold and expressive large-scale works on canvas trace back through the heroic lineages of Sargent, Matisse and Van Gogh.
Working both horizontally and vertically, Krasovetz’s process involves accelerating the drying time of the oil paint which he splashes freely into the artistic ether. Combinations of warm and cool hues emit contrasting notes that emerge as translucent and metallic layers resembling the ebb and flow of water. Ornate patterns and undisclosed narrative qualities embellish the plane. As a whole the portraits evoke a sense of fragmentation, memory, and emotionality, catalyzing around the evocative feminine mystique, which they take as their central theme.
Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Todd Krasovetz currently lives and works in San Diego, California.
