Ken Kraus’ paintings have the chromatic burst and formal strength that can only come from the eye of a natural colorist and the hand of a trained architect. His abstract landscapes evoke sun-soaked days in deserted cities or on Mediterranean beaches - a world of royal blues and zingy oranges seen through optimistic eyes. Likewise his sculptures are bold strokes of acrylic, surrounding the occasional found image, like a tiny cityscape rescued from a glossy magazine, striking a pitch-perfect balance between energetic sweeps of color and clear, tight detail.
“It is hard to suggest that what you see is what you get, or what you get you may not actually see.” As Kraus says, "I want people to experience the beauty of my paintings - to find their own tune and heart beat, their own images - from the splashes of color to the strength of the Gestures. Leave with a warm heart!"
First established over 100 years ago, the Greenwich Art Society presents its prestigious Annual Juried Exhibition. Including more than 60 artists with works in all media and genres, the show provides an overview of the various stylistic trends and techniques employed by artists today.
This Year’s Juror is Cara Manes, Assistant Curator and Collection Specialist in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, NYC. Cara oversees all ongoing displays in the collection galleries. She also works extensively on museum exhibitions and special installations.
