MARSHFIELD — The creations of Ines Krolo will be on display through Sept. 15 at the Chestnut Center for the Arts in Marshfield.
The show, entitled Captured Moments, features a collection of contemporary abstract art by Krolo.
“Although I completed training as a medical doctor in my native country, Croatia,” Krolo said, “it was always clear to me that my true passion lies somewhere else: waiting for the right moment.
“Unpredictable things inspire me, moments, quick look at something, smell, memory, a poem.
“Bob Dylan said that behind every beautiful thing there’s some kind of pain. I am in search of that kind of beauty, beauty that makes you want to weep, something painfully beautiful, odd, and imperfect.
“And to get there I will use just about any material and any technique known and unknown to the art world to achieve certain vision that I desire. Hence, besides oil, acrylic, (the use of) pastel, charcoal, spray paint, the use of common household items, crafts, hardware products, sand and rocks, … pours and squirts of paint, mixing unmixable, thinking unthinkable, and then my love for mistakes and accidents.”
The Chestnut Center for the Arts is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information call 715-389-8999.
