In her often large-scale oil paintings, Carla Klein (Netherlands, 1970) explores and bends our image of reality. While she based previous work on her own analogue photography, she adds easily reproducible prints as a point of departure in her new paintings. Klein is attracted to the abstraction of a landscape, and is intrigued by the way the same site can appear simultaneously flat and deep. Balancing between materiality and illusion, Klein challenges the notion of recognizability and representation. KM21 presents new and recent work by Klein in her first Dutch museum solo exhibition.
