Ahni Kruger is a painter and printmaker whose richly detailed images form a provocative blend of conceptual and perceptual approaches. Her practice of addressing formal visual challenges on location on the landscape informs her studio work. Ahni dips into nature as source or muse- but not dictator- to fortify her allegories about global consciousness and political misadventure.
An adjunct professor of printmaking and 2-D design at Drew University in Madison, NJ, Ahni holds a BFA from Cornell University, and a MFA in studio art from Montclair State University, where she received an award for excellence in painting. She has been the recipient of an NJSCA fellowship and grants from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and the Vermont Studio Center.
