Sharon Butler blogs about Nicholas Krushenick: Electric Soup at the Tang Museum at Skidmore College, on view through August 16, 2015.

Butler writes that Krushenick "is best known for fusing popular culture with non-objective abstraction. The result is an aggressive, eye-popping style, full of bold line, highly saturated color, and visual ambiguity... Anticipating the bold patterns of Marimekko fabrics and 1970s super-graphics, the surfaces are so uninflected they seem printed rather than handmade. Although Krushenick’s work from the 1960s is defiantly non-objective, it is rife with spatial illusions and their contradictions that burst off the canvas."
