Michele Krauss was born in Santiago, Chile. She moved to the United States in 1987, and while mostly residing in New England, she has also lived in Milan, London, San Francisco, Miami, Madrid and New York, studying Interior Architecture, Design and Art. “In the world that surround us, there is juxtaposition between movement and what is static. What change and what does not. A juxtaposition of nature and man-made constructions, the natural architecture and the constructed one. The fluidity and movement and the rigidity of the structure. I express this juxtaposition that I see wherever I look and the feelings and interpretations I experience.” But while there is a juxtaposition of elements in the landscape itself, there is also a contrast between emotions and perceptions. That is what ultimately moves me to want me to represent it physically in the form of a painting. Krauss has showed nationally and internationally, participating in Contemporary Art Fairs, Solo and Group Exhibits.
