more In this oil painting, we see mystery's veil shrouding our vision. "Scattered Floes" is a more than appropriate title for this work, Nicholas Kriefall evokes the experience of floating sheets of ice in a perfect manner. There is blend of white, blue and black; these are all colors of this natural circumstance. The purity of the ice, the purity of the water underneath and the blackness which occurs when the two are met, and turn into one. It speaks to the natural way of how things change, develop and inevitably come together as one.
This piece is currently on display in the gallery and will be available for delivery the week of November 13, 2017.
Nicholas Kriefall is a contemporary American painter. His works give way to a distinct feeling of something struggling to come through to the surface. Kriefall achieves tension with his use of dense layering and rich colors. The eerie sense of instability creeping through each work describe the terror and beauty of nature’s uncertain behaviors. Kriefall pushes Romantic attitudes towards fear and awe, as described by Edmund Burke and Immanuel Kant, to a new threshold. He reexamines the language used, making it startlingly new and finding a place for it in the contemporary world.
Kriefall has had solo shows at Hue Gallery of Contemporary Art in Wichita (2017), Metropolitan Square Building (2016, 2015, 2014) and Hoffman LaChance Contemporary in St. Louis (2011). His work has been exhibited in group shows at Soulard Art Gallery in St. Louis (2017, 2013), Pryor Fine Art in Atlanta (2014) and Old Orchard Gallery in St. Louis (2013). Kriefall is currently based out of St. Louis, Missouri. less
