Michigan born, Brooklyn based painter, Jeff Kraus’s approach to paint is immediate, compulsive, and rhythmic. Spontaneous movements are dragged, scratched, and pressed onto surfaces. Kraus’s work emphasizes the performative act of mark making while still using traditional mediums like paint on board. This energy flows through his artwork, with each stroke and splatter catching seemingly every move he made to create this painting. Yet through all the chaos, his bold use of white and negative space still creates a void within the place and time of creation,
