Sydney Krause (°1982, Winnipeg, Canada) started her career as a fashion designer and has worked in both Los Angeles and NYC in this field. In the art world she is known for her neon / light sculptures which she has showcased in Montreal and Miami. Currently, she is a partner and creative director at Fülhaus an turnkey interior design firm.
By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, Krause investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects on our assumptions and what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination. Most of her projects appear as dreamlike images in which fiction and reality meet, meanings shift, past and present fuse. Light, electricity and reflection play a key role and are almost always inspiring her seemingly random works, which appear unfiltered.
Her works feature coincidental, accidental and unexpected connections while respecting art history and, even better, by complementing it. By using popular themes such as sexuality, reflection and light, she touches various overlapping themes and strategies. Several reoccurring subject matter can be recognized, such as the relation with popular culture and media, working with repetition, illumination, provocation and the investigation of the process of expectations. Her works often refers to pop and mass culture. Creating a world where light-heartedness rules and where rules are undermined.
Sydney Krause currently lives and works in Montreal.
