Simultaneously contemporary and archetypal, Kruger's abstract work emanates an indigenous sensibility inspired by feathered Amazonian ceremonial art. Her Plumage and Raptor series reflect a sober awareness about the threats to bird populations worldwide.
Kruger transforms the fluid and sensuous materials of wax and fiber into an original body of work that succeeds in blurring the dichotomy of art and craft. Her interpretation of feathers emerges through a complex technique using fiber, encaustic, oilstick, waxed linen, and wire.
Kruger now divides her time between the US and Mexico where she has created the recent Halcyon series which alludes both to a mythical bird and a time of creative generativity which clearly characterizes her new bi-cultural studio life.
Her reviewers have described her pieces as objects of "visual sensuality, primal and timeless" and one reviewer mused that her work was 'abstractly beautiful and richly imagined making statements about identity lost and overlooked."
