Artists “who straddle painting and sculpture often really appeal to me,” says Krantz. Last year, she saw an inspiring show at the Paula Cooper Gallery of Alan Shields’ work from the seventies. “He feels like a painter, he worked with canvas, but he just kind of exploded it.” She’s also drawn to the forms and color of the woven works of Sheila Hicks. Another influence: “This is really weird but there’s a gigantic Goodwill here and I love going in there and looking around at all the stuff people don’t want anymore, the mishmash of it, it feels like a giant collage.”
