“I hope to convey the same sense of questioning and wonder that I have. I think everything can be looked at a second time or in a different light”
"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

About Alyssa Krause
Alyssa Krause is a painter living and working in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Painting & Drawing at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in 2019. Krause’s work focuses around generating a response of familiarity in an unfamiliar form as a way to question the parameters of perception. Through predetermined rules set up before making a painting, Krause creates a border between herself and the painting. Her work is driven by the desire to understand the core of perception in painting—it’s always an alteration, an assumption, a second landing. Krause’s work has been shown locally in Milwaukee and across the Midwest, as well as in publications such as Under the Gum Tree.
