Painting a tribute to military sacrifice

San Diego Union Tribune

“Hero Ascending” released by San Diego artist Todd Krasovetz


“Hero Ascending” by Todd Krasovetz

A female Navy officer commissioned a San Diego military artist to create a painting to celebrate the sacrifice of a dying Marine.


The painting, “Hero Ascending” by Todd Krasovetz, shows a badly wounded Marine being brought into an operating room. Faces of the surgeons are tense. In the upper corner of the painting is the outline of an angel carrying the Marine upward.

The idea behind the painting is to bring comfort in the face of a hero’s death.

The scene goes back to a poignant moment Lt. Melissa Wells, a retired Navy medical officer, remembered from one of her deployments to Fallujah, Iraq.

A group of Marines brought a wounded comrade out of a combat truck into a field surgical unit where Wells worked.

There were many days when the medical team could stop the bleeding, numb the pain, and save the limb and somehow the life. That was not one of those days, Wells said. “I felt acutely aware of the life force within this Marine, and I knew the instant he passed away.”

At that moment, she felt a warmth flood the trauma room, that came from the left upper corner of the room. “It was as if a wave of compassion spread through the once chaos filled space, and in doing so, removed the fury, sadness and grief. All I felt was peace — it was a hand of God moment,” Wells said.

“When I went on deployment, my family worried about me and when someone doesn’t come back, there is grief, but I wanted the painting to show the other side of that — the peacefulness — there is a glorious and compassionate ascendance into heaven for the soul of a hero,” Wells said.

Wells, who lives near Quantico, Va., served 17 years in the Navy and was a member of the Fleet Marine Force. She was medically retired six years ago because of traumatic brain injury from a mortar blast in Iraq.

Wells and Krasovetz plan to donate a print to the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle. Va. with the possibility of donating the 24-by-36-inch original to the Smithsonian.

“The painting pays tribute to those who have given their lives for our freedom and disabled veterans who have been injured and been there in the painting, but have come back,” Krasovetz said.

“The piece is supposed to convey the feeling that something spiritual is happening — there’s something powerful going on there and you can see it in the eyes of the surgeon who is taken aback,” Krasovetz said.

Krasovetz is known in military circles for his painting, “Wings of Hope,” originally installed 15 years ago at the entrance to the old Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton. The painting shows a Navy corpsman pulling a wounded Marine to safety on a sandy shore. In the reflection of the water, the corpsman has wings. Krasovetz, based in Point Loma, has been commissioned by nearly every branch of the military to produce works at 11 military installations across the country over the past 15 years.

“Wings of Hope” also caught the attention of set designers for the ABC Lifetime TV series “Army Wives” and several of his military paintings have appeared on the set.

Krasovetz started doing military paintings as a way to honor service members. His father fought in Vietnam and his brother, Scott Krasovetz, a Navy corpsman, was deployed multiple times to Iraq with the 1st Marine Division based at Camp Pendleton.

The painting is as much a tribute to military members as it is to their families who stand behind them, Wells said.

Todd Krasovetz: Dual Coast Abstract Artist Calls Shelter Island Home

By | 12/02/2012 | Life, Local | 5 Comments

Todd Krasovetz is one extremely busy individual. He is a painter of abstract and “military art,” a father, husband, businessman, and an all around San Diegan (a resident of Shelter Island). In the realm of “military art,” Krasovetz has had one of his paintings set in Lifetime’s television show Army Wives, as well as a piece commissioned by the Walter Reid Military Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. Though Krasovetz is known for his military art work, he maintains a driving passion in creating modern abstract art.

Krasovetz has shown and his abstract work in New York City at the Agora Gallery from June 12 to July 3, was commissioned to paint a mural at La Bec Fin restaurant in Philadelphia, and has had his art shown locally in La Jolla and in his Point Loma Studio. ” Due to his talent level, Krasovetz is able to be successful at mainly two styles of art, making the journey in the artistic expression continuously fresh and dimensional. Despite remaining active in the local market, Krasovetz has exhibited and sold some of his soft abstracts, “Woman and a Martini Glass,” and “Red Wine Late Night,” at the Agora gallery. Similar to Pollock’s “action painting,” which Krasovetz refers to as “event painting,” the artist creates impressive large scale works reminiscent of Sargent, Matisse, and Van Gogh. Pollock-esque in nature, Krasovetz says of the composition process, “I lay the canvas down, working off the ground, create the basic design, and then continue with the composition. When I’m working, I like to think of the process as ‘the 30,000 foot view’ approach.” Utilizing oil paint, Krasovetz works horizontally – accelerating the drying process, and allowing the artist to delve deeper into his combinations of warm and cool hues. Emitting these contrasting notes, which emerge as translucent and metallic layers, resembling the ebb and flow of water. Ornate patterns and undisclosed narrative qualities embellish the plane. As a whole the portraits evoke a sense of fragmentation, memory and emotionality, catalyzing around the evocative feminine mystique, which they take as their central theme. “I centralize the female figure as the design for my pieces,” says Krasovetz. “Approaching the work in a Pollack/Matisse style, all the while adding a little more realism as a foundation, I typically make the original sketch. Currently, most of my representation is in New York, but since my studio is in Point Loma, it allows for people to see what I’m doing locally.” Though there are many artists in this genre, Krasovetz, with his set influences and style, is definitely a rare find in San Diego. The future will see Krasovetz hosting shows soon in San Diego once again, since he propagates his work in both the east and west.

Press Release:


Manhattan, New York, United States of America

NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of San Diego artist, Todd Krasovetz in Pulse of Abstraction. The exhibition is scheduled to run from June 12 through July 3, 2012.

Internationally known for his published contemporary realist painting, Todd Krasovetz’s soft abstractions forge new artistic territories evoking the power, tempo and tonal complexity of musical composition. Born of a spontaneous process very close to Pollock’s ‘action painting’ which Krasovetz describes as ‘event painting,’ these bold and expressive large scale works on canvas trace back through the heroic lineages of Sargent, Matisse and Van Gogh. Working horizontally, Krasovetz’s process involves accelerating the drying time of the oil paint which he splashes freely into the artistic ether. Combinations of warm and cool hues emit contrasting notes that emerge as translucent and metallic layers resembling the ebb and flow of water.

Ornate patterns and undisclosed narrative qualities embellish the plane. As a whole the portraits evoke a sense of fragmentation, memory and emotionality, catalyzing around the evocative feminine mystique, which they take as their central theme. Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Todd Krasovetz currently lives and works in San Diego, California.
