Description

During the 1940s, Kamrowski 's work reflected his avid study of biology, particularly the process of morphogenesis through which organisms develop their shapes. In this large painting, two surreal creatures, seemingly microscopic or cosmic, float in a mysteriously undifferentiated space that could be sea or sky. Passages of chance and improvisation in Kamrowski's technique—such as dripped paint—mark him as one of the more experimental artists of his time.
