Vertical forms in beige, grey, olive, and yellow build this modern expressive abstract by artist Kris Haas. Marks and scratches circulate the grey column shedding subtle shadows around it. Part of Kris' derivative and ongoing Disjointed Reality series. Her work is rooted in a primal understanding that at any form, shape, or object, whether worn or torn or even due to life's circumstances, beauty still comes through. "You will find bits of wear & tear on the painting itself."

Kris Haas

Portland, Oregon

Artist Kris Haas creates expressive mixed-media abstracts on paper where she relies on intuition when combining blocks of color with free-form shapes. “I think it is important to give the color space to breathe in order to be understood and seen,” says Kris. After her accident in February of 2004 which left her with a permanent brain injury disability, Kris found herself relying on her visual language. Her process starts with selecting the right image, one that will stand out and call to her, images and gestures that create different feelings and a different atmospheric approach. From there, she decides where the color blocks need to go. Notably, one of Kris’ works was in the permanent set of the hit series Mad Men, featured in one of the offices in the last two seasons. Kris is constantly creating and needs her studio clean and organized. “The tabletop does get messy though and it gets a daily organizational cleaning, otherwise I wouldn't be able to work!”
