In contrast to the soft, biomorphic shapes in many of Krasner's earlier paintings, a number of hard-edged abstract forms can be found in this later work.
Brimming with color
The work is filled with three main colors – kelly green, carmine red, and a fuchsia pink.
The geometric forms used in Krasner's ‘Primary Series’ can be seen in this work, described by the art historian Cindy Nemser as ‘expansive yet contained … stately [and] slow-moving’.
Cracks and scratches
If you get right up close to 'Palingenesis', you can start to see the cracks and scratches in the paint.
Palingenesis, Lee Krasner, 1971
