This rack is where Krause hangs the large Sfumato Nudes. Front and center, the exquisite, classical and timeless gelatin silver print Swish, from 1979, series I Nudi. “My work explores a land that is bordered on the one side by the ‘real’ imagery of photography and on the other by the world of fantasy, bridged with a touch of humor,” the artist says. To date, Krause’s hefty resume reveals 86 solo shows and counting, and more than 55 group exhibitions.

“The red room is the library and finishing room where I prepare my work for exhibition,” Krause says. “The figure is a sculpture I made to represent the many saints, among them St. Peter of Verona, who were martyred by having their heads cleaved in two. The skeleton is for my drawing.”
