The work of Valerie Krause emphasises volumes and the hidden dynamism that solid bodies can harbour. Her sculptures adopt elementary forms: they are not strictly geometric constructions, but forms that seem to assume movement in space, accompanied by a gentle minimisation of forms. The relationship between objects and the surrounding space is a central theme in Krause's artistic research. Walking through his sculptures we perceive space as a place that expresses itself in a changing way. The interchange of materials such as plaster, steel and wood is accompanied by changes in form, some of them rigid, static, others more dynamic. Through layering, twisting and accentuated diagonals, he underlines the intrinsic dynamism of the material, denoting an impression of instability that interferes with the viewer's perception of the space.
