Chasing the Invisible is a work that took me on a long journey. Through its beginning stages, I felt as though its composition was missing a critical component. Eventually, I moved the painting into a work closet (as I sometimes do when I am unsatisfied with the direction of a piece) to give myself space from it.
Soon thereafter, my daughter performed her first original Pop song called “Chasing the Invisible,” a revealing tune with a shimmering quality to it. After several days of repeatedly listening to the enchanting tune, the vision hit me. I took the canvas out of the closet and used her song as the pillars of the budding narrative.
Finally, the story of a girl who confronts the reality that her lover was just a figment of her imagination—an “invisible” person built from lonely thoughts and deep desires, emerged. The elements of the original painting that couldn’t “sing” on their own suddenly had a pure and convincing voice.
This piece has since become one my favorites.
We had the pleasure of having an award-winning film/television director, Steven Cantor, filming at Jill Krutick Fine Art recently. Seven of Steven’s films have been nominated for Emmy Awards — with one winning — and he was nominated for an Academy Award for his first film. Steven was joined by his talented crew from Stick Figure Productions, Casey Regan and Jono Field. The team is producing a documentary about artist Jill Krutick. Stay tuned for updates on this very special project!
