VOL. 02.06.2018 | AVERY KLEIN

ABOUT AVERY KLEIN

Minimalism inspires the work of Avery Klein. Her experience with screen printing and graphic art play an integral role in the clean design of her pieces. Klein utilizes form and texture to enhance her work and display her modern vision.


Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma April 12th, 1993.


Inspired by the aesthetic movement of the 1800s, Klein’s minimal work and neutral palette pare down the total graphic elements of her pieces. Seeking to elicit a feeling of calm transcendence through her collection of work on handmade paper. Klein utilizes form and texture to enhance and display her modern vision. Reminiscent of French poet, Franck André Jamme’s collection of tantric paintings featured in “Tantra Song” published by Siglio Press in 2011, Klein’s paintings create a transcendent desire for further exploration.
 

ARTIST STATEMENT


These works on paper represent the talent and art in creating aesthetics. My work is created with the intention of making my viewers feel clear and pure. This series is a representation of life, serenity, simplicity, and positivity. The handmade international paper is a natural form that has a variety of unique markings and texture. It represents the beauty of life on earth. the screen-printed shapes are left to the viewer for whatever they see it as. White is used as a positive color, creating negative space with a positive feeling.
