Unspoken brings us before a series of paintings of animals whose physicality is so lovingly rendered that one is called to pause and enter the intensely felt space of the artist.

Krieger’s technique, in which every muscle, hair and eyelash is delineated, has something of the precision of 19th century naturalism, but her gaze is not a documentary or scientific one.  Rather the slow loving attention to detail brings the viewer to a state of emotional presence.

The atmospheric landscapes in which the animals appear evoke dream spaces, a metaphysical other-place conjured from somewhere beyond our consciousness, elsewhere from that which is tangible and known.  Krieger is preoccupied with death as a metaphoric hinterland, composing her landscapes from mist and shadows, so that their dreamy softness might amplify the living brightness of the fox, bird or short-lived wreath of flowers.

Before these paintings the viewer finds themselves bringing a hand over the heart, and feeling the weight and presence of all the untold stories within.
