Thickly layered, interlocking brushstrokes and paint splatters dance across this canvas in a bold palette-Kelly green, olive green, fuchsia, gold, and ivory. This work has a clear compositional structure, in its pink latticework of brushstrokes bounded by thinner areas of olive green, but it also presents an intuitive style of painting: Krasner's borders appear unable to contain her own gestural marks and splatters. This large-scale painting emphasizes Krasner's interest in working with the entire surface of the canvas to create an "all over" composition. The title, Towards One, was applied to the painting by Krasner after the canvas was completed, based on the mood it evoked for her.
