Penny Kronengold: Swimmers and Other New Works > Additional Information

First Street Gallery

Penny Kronengold
- Additional Information -

In these new works, swimmers await the moment of entry into the water, or are caught diving at the start of an event. Time and space are equally a part of these paintings. The artist developed many of the images from small drawings done on the pool deck of the Asphalt Green facility in New York City. Others are recalled from a swim meet at City College. Kronengold works for years with a subject. The possibilities afforded her by an infinite number of live models in action, and the metaphors of water, pace clocks and diving blocks have inspired an ongoing exploration of this new theme.

Penny Kronengold has exhibited at the Albright-Knox Member's Gallery, the Stamford Museum, the Trenton City Museum, and at the Richard Stockton College Art gallery. Her collectors include Mobil Oil Corporation, MCI Telecommunications and the Printmaking Workshop. Her paintings and sculpture have been reproduced in Tikkun and American Craft. Most recently, her 1998 First Street exhibition was reviewed by Jed Perl in The New Republic.
