Megan Klim is an American contemporary 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 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 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, VA and has received numerous awards. Her mixed media pieces have been seen at ART BASEL, Miami and have been included in the 2019, 2020 and 2022 New Jersey Arts Annuals held at various New Jersey State Museums.
She is the recipient of a 2023 New Jersey State Council on the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship.
