Megan Klim’s work pays with transparency vs. density while the work of Kirsten Sejda expresses complexity with structure. Both artists explore the interaction of materials to gain insight and awareness of the narrative it creates. Both tell a unique story. Please join us for this intriguing exhibition!
Megan Klim is a mixed media artist who lives and works in Jersey City, New Jersey. She received her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in the discipline of painting.
Her 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 her pieces from textured encaustic surfaces, to grid like structures made of thread, wire or cloth.
Klim's themes usually reference the idea of an internal/external as well as structure vs. gesture. Through her use of pattern or repetition, she reflects upon human individuality while also offering a tactile visual experience. It is her goal that through the tangible an ethereal space is created and felt instead of just seen.
Klim has exhibited in NYC, NJ, MI, PA, FL and has received numerous awards. Her mixed media pieces have been seen at ART BASEL, Miami as well as in several museums.
