Grounded firmly in drawing, Michael Krueger works in a variety of media including, painting, drawing, printmaking, animation, and ceramics. Krueger’s artwork reflects a deep interest in American history, contemporary American culture, art history, the human experience, and personal memoir. The new paintings Krueger is exhibiting in Wherewithal are created with stencils, rollers, screen-printing, airbrush and shaped canvases. The paintings are pristine and otherworldly, while flat and persistent of object-ness, small but less than intimate, familiar but unknown, awkward and comfortable.
Michael Krueger is professor of drawing and printmaking at University Kansas. He has exhibited extensively throughout the US and internationally, his works are held in scores of public and corporate collections, including: Auckland Art Gallery, Auckland NS; BMFA, Boston; Denver Museum of Art; Fogg Art Museum, Harvard Univ.; Museum of Art, RISD; Nelson-Atkins Museum
