Keren Kroul works with watercolor on paper to create dense and rhythmic organic formations. Made of meticulous lines and delicate watercolor washes, they expand over several sheets of paper, reaching dimensions as large as 8 feet by 13 feet. Inspired by memories, neural pathways, and natural elements, her works on paper are landscapes of the mind.

 

Keren will demonstrate her working style and share her influences during this demonstration.

 

Born in Haifa, Israel, to an Argentinean father and Israeli mother, Keren was raised in Mexico City and Costa Rica, and currently lives in Minneapolis, MN. She holds an MFA in Painting from Parsons School of Design (NY) and a BA in Fine Arts from Brandeis University (MA).

 

Keren’s work has been exhibited at the Minnesota Museum of American Art, Rockford Art Museum, Duluth Art Institute, Art Museum of the University of Memphis, Revolving Museum, and Soo Visual Arts Center, among others. She was featured in the 2016 season of MN Original (TPT-Twin Cities PBS), and was a 2D finalist at ArtPrize in 2016. Keren is a 2015 and 2017 recipient of the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant, and a 2017 Jerome Emerging Artist at the Rochester Art Center (MN). She teaches painting and drawing at Augsburg College, the Minnetonka Center for the Arts, and the MITY program at Macalester College.
