William Kroll, United States
Eve Has Fallen
Oil on Canvas
15 H x 30 W x 1.5 in
"Eve has fallen from grace upon the fruit of her own demise. She now rests upon the dark abyss of her soul. Despite her failings, the intrinsic natural beauty of form remains just as appealing."
Eve is a figure in the Book of Genesis in the Hebrew Bible. According to the creation myth of the Abrahamic religions, she was the first woman. In Islamic tradition, Eve is known as Adam's wife and the first woman although she is not specifically named in the Quran.
According to the second chapter of Genesis, Eve was created by God by taking her from the rib of Adam, to be Adam's companion. She succumbs to the serpent's temptation to eat the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. She shares the fruit with Adam, and as a result the first humans are expelled from the Garden of Eden. Christian churches differ on how they view both Adam and Eve's disobedience to God, and to the consequences that those actions had on the rest of humanity. Christian and Jewish teachings sometimes hold Adam and Eve to a different level of responsibility for the fall, although Islamic teaching holds both equally responsible. More on Eve
William Kroll’s passion for art was evident at an early age. By age four, Mr. Kroll had absconded with his mother’s Christmas gift, an oil painting set. He was found, hours later, having dutifully copied several of the family’s holiday greeting cards. His paintings are expressions of honesty about our world, and that is not always pretty or flattering. True beauty, for his work, lies in the masterful execution of the painted surface. He believes that the portrayal of his subjects, with artistic license and realistic detail, allows them to reach beyond their, often humble, origins. For the past thirty years he has also been a business owner and holds multiple patents on his work. To some, his day-to-day executive duties, worldwide travel and all-night painting binges might seem a bit overwhelming, but Mr. Kroll always has another horizon to reach. Stemming from his previous involvement with the commercialization of super-conductor technology, he is currently developing new processes and products in the field of nanotechnology as well as a new bio-medical device. Mr. Kroll knows he is a fortunate man. He lives in Houston, Texas with his wife of thirty+ years. They have two children together, both attending university and pursuing advanced degrees. He, unlike many others around the world, has the privilege of not only creating art, but also the luxury of producing whatsoever he chooses. His paintings provide a personal insight about the society we live in and its values for this and future generations to come. The constant internal drive to create is Mr. Kroll’s daily bread. Like the water we drink and the air we breathe, art for him is necessary for life. More on William Kroll
