Really fantastic work by artist Charles Kraft … I could write more, but these pictures really speak for themselves. I’ll try anyway.
There’s something about taking an idea so loaded, like a gun (pun intended) and making it out of such a fragile material like porcelain that … well, ask yourself what it means? Kraft draws upon the Dutch tradition of Delft painting, but does it in a way that turns it upside down. This is the kind of work that appeals to both the fine artist and the layman.
