SUNDAY is pleased to present the first New York solo exhibition by artist Michael Krueger.

Michael Krueger’s most recent drawing series gives focus on the time between histories and the conflicting narratives that leave the characters and creatures of history of the American West in limbo. Through swift and delicate lines of colored pencil, histories someone’s and the nobodies are juxtaposed with relics of the present and are left isolated in their quest to make sense of their situation. The contrast of the medium with the subject causes a certain playfulness that coincides with the restless of these characters. These figures focus on simple gestures and the interplay between the current moment, the past and the present. Their histories lie in the balance as different factions write and rewrite their stories. Each piece instills a deep sense of narrative, memory, realism, melancholy and a vein of tenderness.
