Spray paint, acrylic on paper | 2020
The Davis Lake series of paintings was created while Kraus spent the summer of 2020 at his parents’ house in Northern Michigan, during lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Kraus found peace and inspiration in nature, painting in the grass under the summer sun with the stillness of the lake in front of him. Using energetic strokes of spray paint, he depicts direct representations of the shadows cast onto the paper in bright hues, with a white overlay that erases while building depth. Through his abstract depictions of shadows, Kraus makes permanent the passage of time.

Framing & Mounting
Our frames are produced from the best quality wood, primarily from Italy. Each is custom cut and assembled by hand to fit your art. Hanging hardware included!
THIN GALLERY FRAME

3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
