Megan Klim: Veiled Series
January 11–March 3
My mixed media work juxtaposes several materials on one picture plane to create an interaction and conversation between them while highlighting the inherent qualities of the specific materials. A physical presence is apparent in my pieces from textured encaustic surfaces and punctured paper to grid-like structures made of thread, wire, or cloth. My themes usually reference the idea of an internal/external as well as structure vs. gesture. Through the use of pattern or repetition, I reflect upon human individuality while also offering a tactile visual experience. It is my goal that through the tangible an ethereal space is created and felt, instead of just seen.—Megan Klim
