"Ivory Black, Deep Orange Yellow. Carla Klein" launched at KM21

Yasmijn Jarram (curator KM21) with Carla Klein

Last Sunday June 2nd artist book Ivory Black, Deep Orange Yellow by Carla Klein was launched at KM21 in The Hague. The afternoon was held in the exhibition room where Klein's first solo museum exhibition in the Netherlands Close Distance took place the past few months. One of the authors of the book, Gerrit Willems engaged in a conversation with Carla Klein about her work and practice. 

Ivory Black, Deep Orange Yellow. Carla Klein shows Klein's large oil paintings filled with emptiness, conveying a world that feels abandoned. She searches a certain anonymity in monotonous landscapes. 'I prefer to be able to look into the distance, as far as possible'. Klein explores the interplay between digital and analog mediums, probing the complexities of image creation and interpretation. Drawing from her own photos, transitioned from negative to snapshot to canvas, her landscapes take on new meanings, detached from their origins. Her works aren't reproductions but interpretations, shedding light on how contemporary visual culture shapes our perception. The release of this Monograph coincides with her first solo museum exhibition in the Netherlands at KM21 in The Hague. Klein exhibited numerous times nationally as well as internationally, and has received multiple scholarships and prizes.
