Megan Klim exhibits Metaphors for the Human Condition

RECEPTION: Sunday, November 84, 1998 at 1-4pm

Megan Klim is a visionary who has been exhibiting and winning awards for the past ten years. She is currently a painting/mixed media professor at The College of New Jersey in Trenton. Previously, she taught painting at Paint Creek for the Arts in Rochester, MI and then at the Governor’s School of Arts in Trenton.

Megan’s mixed media is a blend of materials used to initiate a contrast between internal and external elements. Through gesture and structure she represents something inherently human sometimes hinting at "skins" (tracing paper and paint) over a network of lines (wires and pencil). The fragile paper is hardened and made tougher. It can puff out or sink in to the backgrounds. Within these atmospheres, the strength of line acts as a skeleton, weaving in and out. The layers of paint are thick and dense covering transparent papers. The depth and intricate design created by these mediums lure you in.

Megan sees her procedure, by the physical contrast, a metaphor for the human state and condition. She is recording her interaction with the materials. These works show detail and powerful texture while keeping the colors toned down. Her emphasis is obviously on the reaction of materials against one another.

This exhibit will be on display in the downstairs gallery of the Watchung Arts Center from November 3rd to the -29th with an opening reception on Sunday, November 8th from 1-4pm. The opening is a time when you can speak to the artists about their work, careers and future plans. Exhibit and office hours are from 1-4pm Mondays through Saturdays.
