To a great extent, the look of Krushenick's paintings remained remarkably consistent across the thirty-seven-year span covered by this selection: a limited palette of groovily
bright and punchy colors; a combination of large areas of uninflected color with (often stripelike) patterning; blunt but dynamic compositions; forms outlined, cartoon like, in black, ostensibly to prevent optical mixing of hues.
A couple sets of groovily
garish motorcycle leathers, however, wouldn't hurt.
On the level of representation, Haynes's mingling of dolls and "reality" rocks: The jet-molded actors' scenes are enhanced by establishing shots of "real" suburban scenery, cutaways to "real" gesturing hands, actual toilets, and TV clips that dynamize the groovily
dressed, stilted Barbies.
