No other work in Toshiko Kitano Groner’s solo exhibit, Color & Connection, speaks more clearly about her career esthetic than Tribute, a symbolic apple perched on point where she evolves into pure, colorist expression.

Since she painted Tribute, her work has grown even more dependent on color as objects disappeared from her work. Graphic designs are used to steady pictures reaching for balance.

Works in Color & Connection are best described as ideas or concepts expressed through the imaginative use of color.

Flow features pulses of color surging across a more orderly grid, a suggestion of pending conflict or increasing complexity, echoing unseen conditions in the real world. These are best left to visual expression that transcend words.

“There is a certain harmony that is achieved with that she chose to show in this exhibition, and there is much simplicity but also a great degree of skill in its exhibition, with how simple squares of color and line morph with each other to form depth and contrast throughout.” - Rudy Guitierrez, Pratt Institute

On one wall in the gallery, Groner isolates single pieces from four different series and combines them to create a new series, challenging the viewer to see more by forcing contrast.
