STATEMENT

Megan Klim's mixed media work juxtaposes several materials on one picture plane highlighting their inherent qualities to create surface tension thus sparking a conversation and interaction between them.  A physical presence is apparent in her pieces from textured encaustic woven surfaces,  punctured paper to grid like structures made of  thread, wire or cloth.  Klim's themes usually reference the idea of an internal/external as well as the balance between structure vs. gesture.  Her work honors materials and process, frequently occupying a space between painting and sculpture. 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.
