Kroul will develop her artistic practice by creating and exhibiting ambitious large scale paper pieces that form an immersive environment. The success of this project will be evaluated by the completion of the new works, their exhibition to the public in three distinct venues, and their critical reception.
Keren Kroul successfully accomplished her proposed outcome. She created a series of large scale works that were exhibited at four distinct venues. This project was evaluated by the productive output it generated, its exhibition to the public at four distinct venues, and its critical reception. My work received a positive critical review in Minnesota Artists on November 2017.
