Artist Statement BIO

Marsha Klein's art is full of energy and the raw vision of a waking dream. Klein’s art career has spanned nearly fifty years creating bold, expressive oil paintings and organic ceramic sculpture. Her passion for art began as a teenager when she discovered the art museums of her native New York City. Klein majored in art and art history at Brooklyn College and University of California, Berkeley, where she studied drawing with R.B. Kitaj and ceramics with Peter Voulkos and Ron Nagle, at the peak of the Bay Area Figurative Movement, receiving her B.A. in 1968. In her early sculpture, she responded literally to the emphasis on bodies in connection to nature. After twenty years spent focusing on sculpture, in 1989, she returned to painting, using the body as metaphor to address the human psyche. Klein’s work has been exhibited nationally, in galleries and museums. She lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Purpose Statement:
My art is transformative, in the making and in the viewing. It is a portal into a deeper, more related, sensually and spiritually empowered self.

My work affects receptive viewers, connecting them with their creativity, primal wisdom and sensual delight in life.

Goal:"To utilize the profound emotional impact of art to inspire the viewer to become more actively engaged in the global struggle to reverse climate change."
