Although her work reflects on the current times, Carla Klein’s paintings are never limited to one idea. Other than serving an opinion, the paintings’ stories are woven into the material and ask for a specific, slower kind of attention. Using oil paint as her medium, her works form a kind of interaction between image, paint, depth and abstraction in which materiality and illusion constantly alternate.
