Acrylic on canvas | 2019
Jeff Kraus produced this recent suite of paintings while in residency at Tappan. Minimal compositions at first glance, they reflect the true grit of the odd pockets that subsist within Los Angeles, capturing the texture and heat of a city through grainy deposits and scrapes of vibrant materials.

“Mistakes often become the final piece. I like to be surprised in the studio. Old works inform new works, along with failed attempts and piles of trashed material.”
