Dana and Ruth Kleinman

Lanoue Fine Art, Boston, MA

" 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.

We work through ideas of connection, be it family or
personal connection, the connection of two seemingly separate disciplines, and
representative of the connection of all living things. And, of course, the
beauty of this connection."

From a distance the work looks sleek and high
contrast with hyper-pigmented painting and shiny metal surfaces, yet up close
the viewer is struck by hand sanded intricate patterns softening the metal and
textural multilayered paintings inspired by natural surfaces. Multiple panels
that shift in depth off the wall reference mathematical equations, but at the
same time talk about boundaries and connections, with pattern and colors tying
the separate pieces together. Intersecting lines are specific cross products in
geometry, yet also represent us as sisters with our paths crossing, or how any
seemingly separate entities can come together in space and time.

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.
