Scott Krichau: New Works

October 15 - November 30, 2004


Scott Krichau's work focuses on forms that incorporate many aspects from nature, the human body, and devices of flight. He says, "the suggestion of growth and travel are important to the work. The relentless drive of nature to reproduce, even when many offspring will not survive, speaks to my concept of the human condition. We continually try to succeed, even when the prospects for accomplishment are not great. Our chance for success makes the risk of failure worthwhile."

After spending three years in Kansas City living and working, Krichau migrated to New Mexico a year ago. He has continued creating organic forms from industrial steel, which started while working on his MFA at the University of Kansas. Although the size of his work has decreased in recent years, the impact of his forms remained impressive. This exhibit offers several small scale drawings companied with a series of new forms that almost float on wall shelves.

Scott Krichau's work may be seen in person at the Harwood Art Center Main Gallery October 4 ­ 29, with a reception on Friday, October 15 Friday, 5-8:30pm.

Also: check out accompanying poetry by TERRY MULERT, selected by Susan McAllister of Harwood Art Center and Harwood Review in response to Scott Krichau's work.
