Deep Romantic Chasm

About

“Deep Romantic Chasm” is a 14 x 14 inch lenticular print of two overlaid images, a stairway and the reflection of branches and leaves in the surface of water. A palette of cool yellow and warm grey contrasts between the arched openings beneath the curving staircase and an abstracted patterning over the surface of the image. The lenticular effect serves to draw out the rippling effect of the water as the images flip between the architectural and the natural. Krause frequently uses photographs from her worldwide travels in her work, capturing architectural elements which are manipulated to create a sense of the otherworldly. The artist has presented this work on a rustic black painted wood support which has been patinaed to give the effect of age. Krause explores the surreal through images of abandoned and submerged worlds: thresholds combined with imagery of leaves and branches reflected on the surface of a pool of water.  Taking inspiration from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s haunting poem, “Kubla Khan, or, A Vision in a Dream, A Fragment” (1797), written after an opium-laced dream of an exotic and opulent palace, Krause’s work highlights the mystery of architectural space and light: doorways, windows, and hallways from which light either shines or recedes into blackness.  Ethereal and menacing, her work conveys the poetry of space and light, alluding to spiritual transitions, and ultimately, life and death. These abandoned passages appear to be submerged below the reflective surface of water like the shifting memory of dreams, but also a statement about the impending disappearance of civilization as we know it, through the effects of global warming. Krause is a painter, collage artist and printmaker who incorporates digital mixed media into her art. She is deeply inspired by nature, travel, and innovative art making processes. Her work is exhibited regularly in galleries and museums and featured in numerous current periodicals and books. Krause is Professor Emeritus at Massachusetts College of Art where she founded the Computer Arts Center and a member of Digital Atelier®, an artists collaborative. She is a frequent speaker at conferences and symposia and a consultant for manufacturers and distributors of products which may be used by fine artists. A lenticular is a highly precise process in which the print of an "interlaced" image, (cut and reassembled in vertical strips with computer software), is placed behind a sheet of plastic with a series of parallel lens or lenticules embossed into one surface. When the lens is aligned with the image, the viewer sees only one frame at a time. As the viewing angle changes, each of the images is seen in the planned sequence, creating the illusion of movement, depth or animation.
