Paintings by Jill Krutick
Jill Krutick has been passionate about oil painting all her life. After a career as a top ranked investment analyst and media executive, Ms. Krutick has transitioned to a world that has no boundaries – Art. Influenced by her love of art masters both old and new, such as Van Gogh, Monet and Gerhardt Richter, Ms. Krutick has developed an oeuvre of work that is both abstract and vivacious. “An exploration of my works should reveal as much about a viewer’s emotional state as it does mine. The oil painting may be abstract or it may be representational, but what makes the painting come to life is the interplay of light, colors, textures, shapes and spaces,” Ms. Krutick suggests.
Since turning her full time attention to art, Ms. Krutick, whose studio is now in Scarsdale, New York, has had numerous solo and group art shows. Her work is in both corporate and private collections across the country. In 2013, she was juried into the Liz Afif Gallery Sea and Sky Exhibit in Philadelphia. She was chosen for a solo show in the North Hall Gallery of Splashlight, a leading video production studio in NYC. Artsicle, a leading online website for emerging artists, named Ms. Krutick a “Trending Artist” — based on online interest. In addition, she was selected by Partner’s International and A.T. Kearney, two well-recognized consulting firms, to have several of her works in residence.
