Michael Krondl is a Czech-born artist and longtime resident of New York. He works with very large-scale photographs and occasionally sculpture to create installation pieces. Krondl attended Cooper Union and has exhibited in galleries in New York, Toronto, Dusseldorf, Berlin, Amsterdam, Prague and other locations. His outdoor installation pieces have included billboard projects in Toronto and New York as well as site-specific outdoor installations at Art Omi, the Evergreen House in Baltimore, Black and White Gallery in Brooklyn, and at the Katonah Museum of Art. Krondl’s work can also be seen at the Neptune Avenue subway station as part of the MTA Arts for Transit program. Krondl is the recipient of numerous grants including several Canada Council grants, an Artslink Grant and others.
During his time on Governors Island Krondl intends to pursue a project that seeks to blend two ways of seeing the landscape of Governors Island and New York Harbor, one derived from anonymous aerial imagery and the other from a personal immediate perspective.
