    Lauren Krukowski’s artist statement:
    "Inspired by the humor, beauty and awkwardness of everyday life - I make raw paintings from a place between control, chance, and chaos. I am interested in space between representation and abstraction that seems familiar, but leaves many questions unanswered. Little is planned from start, I paint with a sense of urgency and make intuitive changes throughout, giving each painting a sense of playful unpredictability."

    The aspect of this selection of work that resonates with me is the idea of creating a visual space defined by paradox. In other words, these paintings inhabit an in-between space where the painting is neither pure representation or pure abstraction. The definition of the space is that it has no definition; it is simultaneously two things and neither of those things (abstract and representational). Instead, the space of the painting can be understood as boundary. 
    The binaries of language seem to disagree with the grey area of real life and the political. Even with that said, I think the space of these paintings would be best defined as the boundary between control and chaos.
