CSULB Painting Professor Tom Krumpak in solo exhibition at Lora Schlesinger Gallery

Posted on December 8, 2015 by School of Art

krumpak_untitled_black_48x60_wbCSULB Painting Professor Tom Krumpak will be having a solo exhibition at the Lora Schlesinger Gallery in Santa Monica. Haiku-entitled Bamboo tall, blue sky / a painted abstract picture / inside wooden room the exhibition will run from December 12, 2015 through January 23, 2016. The works in this show were made from tracings of random patterns found on paint palettes, marks and splashes left on work tables or on the artist’s own clothing, momentary stacks of paint cans and books, piles of sea shells or collected rocks, scattered architectural renderings, and historical photos and drawings of the surrounding landscape. Krumpak intermixes them with bits of personal history such as text, poetry, music lyrics and anything that captures place, the past and the present. The result is a body of work that is an obsessive exploration of place and being, time and space.
