Artist Andrea Rowe Kraus has traveled from the dramatic landscapes of Africa to the lush forests of Burma collecting clouds. In this new multimedia series of monotypes, photographs, collages, and paintings, she explores the illusions hidden in plain sight above us, captured in the clouds.
The work in my current exhibition pays homage to Biomorphic Abstraction. The layered, free-form and jazz-inspired biomorphic shapes are the subject of these still-life compositions.
This series is based on the rounded abstract shapes found in nature. These shapes are colorful, lush, and sumptuous. The forms are abstracted, yet they are strangely familiar to the viewer. Viewers can recognize them and connect with them on a primal level, though they may not have seen these shapes before.
The striking biomorphic art of Constantin Brancusi, Jean Arp and Barbara Hepworth continue to be an inspiration for me.

My concern with form, color and structure inform my work.
I use a variety of media to experiment and expand what I do.
Waking from half-remembered dreams.
What I see, What I hear, What I remember.
Feeds my imagination, And fuels my work.
Continuing my exploration of the art and architecture of distant places, these new abstract works are inspired by a trip down under to Australia and New Zealand.
