Troy University is proud to present Afterglow: Recent Paintings by Zdenko Krtić. This exhibit is based on the concept of afterglow, defined by the artist as "the residual glow after a main light source has burnt out." Krtić applies this concept to his studio work; regarding painting as a form of afterglow— the remnants of a vision on paper or canvas. The works featured demonstrate the limitless potential of drawing and painting, as well as the passionate and explorative nature of the artist. 

Zdenko Krtić is a practicing Croation-American artist who has made his home in the deep South. He recently retired from Auburn University after teaching studio art for 25 years. His creative agenda reveals interest in a dynamic idea of history—one that is always mutable and reflective of infinite narrative potentials. Primary mediums include mixed media drawings, installations, encaustic and watercolor paintings.

Please join us on May 4, 5-7 p.m. where Zdenko Krtić will be ellaborating on his process and technique.
