Angel Oak No. 01

Artist’s Statement

I grew up on my grandfather’s farm in northern Ohio where I helped in the fields and with the livestock. My other grandfather took me into the woods to hunt and onto the lake to fish. Solitary hours in the fields, woods, and on the lake provided ample opportunity to ponder the beauty and power of nature. The ordered beauty of crop rows and the concentric ripples on water’s surface made an impression on me. Coupled with a religious upbringing, my faith embraces the notion of a universe created and sustained by a supreme being. A degree in physics fuels my inquisitive nature and reinforces my astonishment at the intricacies of life and the physical processes that drive our universe.




Kent Krugh is a fine art photographer, living and working in Greater Cincinnati, Ohio. Eight years ago, he began to study photography seriously, first taking classes with academic professionals locally, and then attending workshops in alternative processes with Dan Burkholder and Craig Barber.

Krugh’s work has been exhibited at three major festivals during the past three years: Fringe Festival 2010, Cincinnati, OH; FotoFest Biennial 2012, Houston, TX; and FotoFocus Biennial 2012, Cincinnati, OH. His work appears in numerous catalogs, as well as the first International Photography Annual (INPHA 1) published by Manifest Press, 2012. He has received numerous awards in national and international print and portfolio competitions and was a Photolucida 2012 Critical Mass Finalist.

In 2013, three solo exhibitions were scheduled: Inside the Gate, The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center, Covington, KY; Angel Oak, Clifton Cultural Art Center, Cincinnati, OH; and Spectral, University of Cincinnati–Clermont College, Batavia, OH. This summer, at the invitation of curator Juan Alberto Gaviria, Krugh will exhibit Inside the Gate in several venues for ZOOMFEST 2013 in Medellin, Columbia, South America. He also will lecture and teach workshops in collaboration with Colegiatura Colombiana del Diseño, Fundacion Universitaria de Bellas Artes and Centro Colombo Americano under the auspices of the Universidad de Antioquia.

His work is represented locally by Daniel Brown, Independent Art Advisor, and Phyllis Weston Gallery.
