BARBARA KROLL: MY PICTURES ARE ROOTED IN THE REAL WORLD

My pictures are rooted in the real world, but they are by no means illustrations or portraits in the traditional sense, but rather symbolic images.

By Balthzar Malevolent

BARBARA KROLL: MY PICTURES ARE ROOTED IN THE REAL WORLD

Barbara Kroll is a prizewinning painter from Germany whose works have been featured in solo and group exhibitions worldwide. Inspired by everyday life, Kroll mainly paints portraits and unusual objects in a semi-abstract style. Her paintings are full of raw emotion and demonstrate her attention to color and form. The theme depends on the situation. "I am especially interested in unusual combinations of objects, funny motifs, and interesting colors."
