Line Literacy: Ai-Wen Wu Kratz
'IRINA' / 26 X 40 in. / Concentrated crayon & colored pencil on paper.
During the month of September, 2011, Ai-Wen Wu Kratz's large scale works on paper are on view in a 73 linear foot space at Georgetown University Hospital on the first floor of its main building. Kratz distinguishes herself in a proficiency to create purity of forms with lines.
In Kratz's words: "I feel the link between my senses and the execution is direct and immediate to the highest degree, so to bring forth the breath of life." Her further ambition is to combine abstraction and representation into one.
