DESCRIPTION

Klineman has been commissioned to create portraits for some of
the  most   eminent  members   of   the  African-American   cultural   community,
including   Russell   and   Danny   Simmons,  Mary   Schmidt   Campbell,   dance
choreographer  Bill  T.   Jones,  and actor  Malik  Yoba.  Her   choice  of  masks
reflects a sensitivity  to  the cultural  significance of   these objects and  their
innate   beauty.   Ancestry   is   reawakened   through   the   masquerade   of
photographic superimposition.  The earlier  sister  series,   “Tribal  Spirits,”   is a
celebration of indigenous sculpture in the tradition of modern art's fascination
with these objects. 

A show of 25 paintings.
