Michigan born visual artist Jeff Kraus currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. His approach to painting is both rhythmic and immediately compulsive. Scores of spontaneous movements dragged, scratched, and pressed onto surfaces, Kraus’s work emphasizes the performative act of mark making transcribed through formal explorations of material.
