About Alyssa Krause

Alyssa Krause is a painter based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her work derives from concepts of perception through guided visual cues as a way of questioning what we’re seeing versus what actually is. Using images of nature as a basis, Krause manipulates the image through predetermined rules before laying a brush on the surface. She is interested in the way paint transforms an image while simultaneously holding true to the initially observed, and the hiccups that occur during that exchange. Krause received her BFA in Painting and Drawing at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee in 2019 and has shown locally and across the Midwest.

STATEMENT 

"I am questioning the intersection between describing and un-describing as a means to exploring what you see visually. My interest lies in how much information is needed to respond to something representational derived from the real. The space is manipulated by flipping and varying applications of paint, distancing associations from the original image. The responsive matrimony between the real and not real guide my practice—can one remove the connection to the original image while still creating around its initial attributes?." - Alyssa Krause
