Worn and Torn is a derivative and ongoing series of artist Kris Haas' Disjointed Reality series. In this piece, a vibrant block of shifting colors in blue, green, and yellow sit on the upper left corner of the composition. A disproportionate section of yellow is painted below while an energetic application in black bursts in the middle, serving as the focal point of the piece. Kris' work is rooted in a primal understanding that any form, shape, or object, whether worn or torn, due to life's circumstances, holds a beauty that comes through. "You will find bits of wear & tear on the painting itself."

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!”
