Our work has always been riddled with a balance between dualities and connections, indicative of our relationship as two individuals, artists and sisters. Metal and painting come together as two separate disciplines referencing binaries including hard vs. soft, male vs. female, smooth vs. texture, manmade vs. nature, and 2D vs. 3D. Yet mathematical constructs tie each piece together as a whole.
Perhaps it was blood, or simply a similar upbringing, that eventually led to the coming together of aesthetics. Whether arranged in group installations or solo pieces, each work involves a sense of rhythm and mathematics. Not only does this reflect nature in its patterns, but it also ties us together as sisters, undeniably influenced by a mathematician father and a scientist mother.
From a distance, our work looks sleek and high contrast with hyper-pigmented painting and shiny metal. Yet, up close the viewer is struck by textural multilayered paintings inspired by natural surfaces. By undermining the minimalist first impression the work brings a sense of wonder and discovery to the viewer the more time they spend. Multiple panels that shift in depth off the wall talk about boundaries and disparate parts, with geometry and color tying the pieces together and creating connection.
We tackle various themes through our different series, however the common thread is always connection and balance. We are focused on the solution, not simply illustrating the problem. Our latest exploration in arcs, curves and full ellipses furthers our manipulation of the rigid lines of metal. Playing with soft textures and bright colors, this 'feminizing' of the aluminum wall sculpture pieces takes underlying meanings to the next level.
Whether working large scale in aluminum or small scale in sterling silver, the process is quite similar. Shapes and lines are cut into sheets of metal, after which the metal is bent into an open backed box construction. It is then welded or soldered in corners and hand worked to create unique textures. Seen through the negative space in the metal, mounted from behind, oil on canvas is layered to create impressions that get more intricate the closer the viewer gets. The entire presentation and contrast of metal and painting is striking from a distance, as well as detailed and engaging up close.
We are environmentally conscious of our material choices, using up to 50% recycled aluminum and recycled canvas.
The artist/sister collaboration combines the strengths of Dana Kleinman, born 1974 (Boston) and Ruth Avra Kleinman born 1979 (Washington DC). The work was swiftly put into the public eye with an invitation to represent the United States at the 2008 Beijing Biennale at the National Museum of China, running in conjunction with the Summer Olympics. Since 2007, their work has been featured in numerous museums and galleries across the United States and abroad.
