FROM A DISTANCE
Claudia Kraus‘ series „from a distance“ is an atmospheric expedition through inner and outer landscapes. The cycle evolved from dealing with the question of closeness and distance and the meaning of personal places of strength. The landscapes seem unreal, ephemeral and in disperse. Here, distance describes not only remoteness but also an inner state. A subtile examination of sensual perception, mysterious phenomena and ambivalent approaches.
Claudia Kraus‘ Serie „from a distance“ ist eine atmosphärische Expedition durch innere und äußere Landschaften. Die Werkreihe ist aus der Beschäftigung mit der Frage nach Nähe und Distanz sowie der Bedeutung persönlicher Kraftplätze entstanden. Die Landschaften sind beinahe unwirklich, flüchtig und in Auflösung begriffen. Distanz ist hier als räumliche Entfernung und innerer Zustand zu verstehen. Eine subtile Auseinandersetzung mit sinnlicher Wahrnehmung, Rätselhaftem und ambivalenter Betrachtungsweisen.

„It feels like there is a surprise waiting at every destination of her journey which does not get revealed. Mystery is always lurking and the mood she creates allows the viewer to get lost in thought. Besides all this I am also very drawn to Claudia’s photography for the main reason that she treats the natural world with the same love and respect that it reflects.“ — A.H.
