Spray paint, acrylic on canvas | 2019
Brooklyn-based artist Jeff Kraus plays with language and abstraction in the series “My Bunny the Snake.” Veiled between layers of acrylic and spray paint is text on the topic of love. The hidden terms of endearment imply the misunderstanding and humor common in forming romantic relationships. By blurring the boundary between the written word and medium of paint, Kraus suggests that language can be both concept and aesthetic.
