CSULB painting professor featured in Santa Monica solo show


“Floating and Desire,” acrylic on canvas by Tom Krumpak

CSULB painting professor Tom Krumpak will be the featured artist in a solo exhibit at the Lora Schlesinger Gallery, 2525 Michigan Ave., in Santa Monica. Haiku-entitled Bamboo tall, blue sky/a painted abstract picture/inside wooden room, the exhibition will run through Jan. 23.

The works in this show were made from tracings of random patterns found on paint palettes, marks and splashes left on work tables or on the artist’s own clothing, momentary stacks of paint cans and books, piles of sea shells or collected rocks, scattered architectural renderings, and historical photos and drawings of the surrounding landscape. Krumpak intermixes them with bits of personal history such as text, poetry, music lyrics and anything that captures place, the past and the present.
