About the Artists
Roy Robinson, an accomplished architect, explores spatial relationships through captivating abstract fine art. Influenced by his background in architecture and design, Robinson's work delves into intangible themes like beauty, urgency, ambiguity, and transcendence. By skillfully combining contrasting elements, his compositions prompt viewers to reflect on the dynamic interplay between black and white, light and dark, minimalism and excess, control and chaos, as well as the rational and the organic. These thought-provoking pieces serve as metaphysical data, providing glimpses into profound questions about life and personal experiences.
Michael Roller, an abstract artist based in Cincinnati, brings his expertise in industrial design to his artistic endeavors. Roller’s creative process combines structure and improvisation, resulting in abstract compositions inspired by digital culture. Layering acrylic paints, he carefully constructs each artwork, incorporating small rectangles, parallel lines, and intersecting curves as recurring motifs. Influenced by personal memories, artifacts, and emotions, his paintings offer a window into his unique relationship with the world. Roller’s body of work explores the intersection between design and abstract art, striking a balance between control and spontaneity.
"The heart and soul of Studio Kroner reside in the intersection of art and design. In this mesmerizing collaboration between Michael and Roy, the essence of these two disciplines harmoniously intertwines, forging a visually compelling dialogue that invites viewers on a journey of visual exploration.” — Paul Kroner
