Laminating abaca paper over Slinkys, Jennifer Krauss produced brown-spotted, white sculptures that vacillate between classifications. Maybe they are mushroom tops or pincushions, doughnuts or inner tubes? Jennifer used a similar process to create a series of two-dimensional work. Using abaca paper, Krauss applied rust in circular, almost organic patterns. The resulting images appear as mandalas comprising the universe.
Jennifer received a BFA from Washington University, St. Louis and an MFA from University of Chicago. She has also studied at the Skowhegan School and independently in Italy.
