Susan Klein

March 19 - April 22, 2011
Opening Reception for the artist: Saturday, March 19th, from 4 - 6 pm


Susan Klein examines the intersection between painting, sculpture, collage and photography. Through a succession of experimentation and recycling, new work is created from old work, which may later become the source for future work. The exhibit will feature recent work in various mediums that combines both the contradictions and relationships between abstraction and representation, 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional, and what is “temporary” vs. “permanent”. 
She says: “My studio practice is based around the idea that process and experimentation instigate creation. The process is a system of building, dismantling, re-building, deconstructing, and so on. The work is self-referential, in that I may make drawings, cut up the drawings and build sculptures, take apart the sculptures and create collages. Or I may paint and photograph the sculptures, reconfigure the photographs into collage, slice up the paintings, and build them back into sculpture. The old work generates the new and explores the play between abstraction and representation”. 

Susan Klein received her MFA in painting from the University of Oregon, and her BFA from University of New Hampshire. Her work was recently on exhibit at F&N Gallery, Philadelphia, PA; Brooklyn Artists Gym, Brooklyn, NY; The Art Institute of Portland, Portland, OR; Cole Art Center, Nacogdoches, TX; Blackfish Gallery, Portland, OR; and University of Ulsan, Ulsan, South Korea. She currently lives in Philadelphia, PA. More images of Susan’s work can be seen at www.susankleinart.com.
