Natalia Koren Kropf

Circle Dance
16 x 13 monoprint / woodcut, 2012

ARTIST STATEMENT

NATALIA KOREN KROPF explores the movement, the momentary phase of a life long dance. The life of a New York City artist can be full of contrasts, of unexpected turns, and within it one has to stay centered. Her art reveals the spiritual journey within a dance, extending beyond just contemporary figurative art into the realm of the unseen – the trajectory of movement and sound, and a pause – a freeze frame of animation – in seemingly random compositions, which are all a part of a continuum of oneness.
