Artist Talk and Gallery Walk-through with Susan Klein

Saturday, November 21, 2015
Recital Hall, Simons Center & the Halsey Institute galleries

The Halsey Institute will present an artist talk and gallery walk-through with exhibiting artist Susan Klein on Saturday, November 21. The event begins with a slide talk at 2pm in the Recital Hall of the Simons Center for the Arts located at 54 St. Philip Street on the College of Charleston campus. We will then walk down the hall to view Klein’s exhibition within the galleries.

Susan Klein’s painting explores questions of time, of accumulation and losses, of spaces that become layered by history. In her paintings, she often combines imagery from separate places and times into one image. Usually, she begins with a landscape painting, sometimes rural, sometimes urban. She then works over these representational paintings, referencing the visual world of objects. The result is an image that is observational, somehow recognizable yet ambiguous. Traces of concealment and revelation remain and the paintings show wear and tear. Irregular surfaces, architecture, botany, gnarly branches, fences, piles of bricks – they swim together to create a dense visual obstacle course.
