In her cycle shapes_and_lines_connections, Claudia Kraus explores the meaning of „connections“ on many different levels: Fine lines are connected to abstract structures and shapes. The photography finds its equivalent in her graphic works and together they form a visual dialogue. The images show forms and materials of nature: grass, branches, stones, sand and bones.

Claudia Kraus creates her graphic works in an intuitive, meditative process: „The lines interweave and form shapes and spaces. The denser an image, the calmer my mind becomes, which seems like an interesting paradox to me.“
