> DESCRIPTION

Zolla/Lieberman Gallery is proud to present two concurrent solo exhibitions by two noteworthy Chicago-based artists, Vera Klement and William Conger, the newest addition to our roster.


"Early & Late Work," an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Vera Klement, will be the artist's second solo exhibition with the gallery. During her over 50-year career, Klement has placed equal importance on color and composition as the development of imagery related to time, memory, and human experience. The work on view provides the ingredients for a subjective experience by pairing open-ended, dichotomous elements such as a gestural splatter of paint and an ambiguous vessel, or a textured color field and isolated architectural fragments.

 

“From the beginning I experienced a sense of duality - the bright light and rhythmic pounding of the sea, and there, rising behind it, the dark forest that held in its silence the northern European legends of evil spirits...Light and dark, good and evil, life and death. That juxtaposition that eventually became the underpinning of my painting..." – Vera Klement

Vera Klement (b. 1929, The Free City of Danzig (now Gdansk, Poland)) has lived and worked in Chicago since 1964 and her work has been shown and collected extensively across the country. Recent exhibitions include solo exhibitions at the Rockford Museum of Art, Rockford, IL, and the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art, Sedalia, MO, and group exhibitions at Governors State University, University Park, IL, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL.  Public collections include The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA; Illinois State Museum, Springfield, IL; Museum of American Art, Smithsonian, Washington, DC; The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL. In years past, Klement has been the recipient of multiple grants and other awards, including the Camargo Foundation Residency and Stipend, Cassis, France (2006) and the Pollock-Krasner Grant (1998).
