EXCERPT
Milkweed Painting Notes: Krasner was very critical of her own work and was known for destroying paintings that “weren’t good enough”. Her cut-up her paintings led to her canvas collages from those pieces. She recycled these pieces, incorporated them with paper scraps, and then applied a new layer of oil paint. The painting is an abstract interpretation of stem and leaf-shapes of the milkweed plant plus the orange-black monarch butterfly. The butterfly uses milkweed as an egg depository. Krasner was interested in the natural world and it began to strongly manifest itself in her art work. Her home at the Springs in East Hampton was a beautiful corner of the natural world.

EXCERPT
Mysteries Painting Notes: Two influences were important for this painting. First, Krasner had seen an exhibition of Native American art at MOMA. It stuck with her and she wanted to do something with it. She especially liked the Northwest coast woodcarving art of the Haida, the Tlingit, and the Kwakiutl peoples. Krasner also liked the strong color palette the Native Americans used of white, red, and black. The second influence was Carl Jung's theories of a collective unconscious. Jung saw the mythological Native art as relevant to modern life. Krasner saw it as relevant to modern art.
