Rae Klein: The Comfort in Calamity

    September 16-October 29, 2022

    Jessica Silverman is pleased to announce Rae Klein: The Comfort in Calamity, on view September 16 through October 29, 2022 in the gallery’s second-floor space. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery presenting ten new, large-scale oil paintings that are indicative of her practice examining power, opulence and memory through a deft combination of the surreal and the ordinary. In her paintings, Klein often suspends objects in space, recalling the compositional strangeness of Salvador Dali and Max Ernst. Playing with background and foreground wields both the precision and softness of her brush.

    Rae Klein (b. 1995, Holland, MI) graduated from Eastern Michigan University in 2017 with a BFA in Painting. In 2021, she enjoyed her first solo exhibition titled Waiting in the Field at The Valley, Taos, New Mexico followed by Low Voice Out Loud in 2022 at Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles. Recent group exhibitions include End of Eden, Galerie Wolfsen, Aalborg, Denmark; Todos es de Color, The Curator’s Room, Amsterdam; Paper, BEERS, London; I Have My Eye On You, Everyday Gallery, Antwerp; and When Shit Hits The Fan Again, Guts Gallery, London. Klein lives and works in Michigan.
