Jeff Kromer describes his
“I enjoy using the “automatic line” describing unconscious thought, wandering linear shapes that eventually become conscious forms such as a torso, head, claw or cloud. Considering a new shape on a canvas allows me to build and possibly choose a new path in the work. The “emotional line” is a term I use to describe heavy or light pressure of my hand on the medium-whether pastel, color pencil, charcoal or graphite-placing the medium on its side or back to the point in varying degrees. Using different erasures, damp rags, washes or even a touch of spray fix to achieve a slight draw in the medium to carry it across the paper or canvas is for me the thrill of creating. Like a sliding scale from unconscious to conscious thought a conversation ensues between me and the canvas. For me the act of painting is as important as the finished product.”
