James Krone was born in 1975 in Chicago, where he obtained his BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, before concluding his academic career in 2008 at the Mountain School of Art in Los Angeles. His paintings explore a sense of textural subtlety, with each added iteration making seemingly minute changes. In his most recognizable works, Krone pulls form a limited, nearly monochrone palette; even in moments where the artist expands his formal lexicon, experimenting with vibrantly colored video or tropical-patterned fabric in sculpture, he distills them in a manner that is conceptually resonant with his paintings. Describing his paintings as "screens," Krone's work reflects his interest in perception, exploring how the smallest of changes or the repetition of forms can affect the viewer. Krone's work has been exhibited throughout Europe and the United States.
