    About the artist

    Strauss uses colorful acrylics on paper or canvas, often combined with vibrant contour lines and collaged text, to depict the elasticity of Time. There is nostalgia for the road in scenes of everyday domestic life and a frozen still point on the road. Influenced by her ancestors going back to Lucas Cranach and family friends such as Alice Neel, Strauss uses the paintbrush to quickly render her arrivals and departures, her moments of bliss and longing, as her daily record of events.
