Many of you will remember Anita Klein's set of cards she created for the Secret Auction last November. When we asked Anita if we could use one of the images for our Best of AoaPC show at Jealous, Anita agreed but only if she could make a brand new image to screen print. We of course were delighted and decided to do a special edition of 100 prints to do justice to this stunning new image.
Anita Klein studied at Chelsea and the Slade schools of art. She is a fellow and past president of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers (RE) and her work is in many private and public collections in Europe, the USA and Australia, including Arts Council England and the British Museum. She divides her time between studios in London and Anghiari, Italy.
“Ravel said he wanted his music to be complex, but not complicated. Anita Klein might say the same of her art. There is a grand simplicity to her works, but that is not the same as saying they lack subtlety and ambiguity. On the contrary, they have the sort of unselfconscious directness that comes from living and breathing art for so long that it becomes second nature” - John Russell Taylor
This print will be part of our 20 Best of Art on a Postcard curated by Jealous Gallery which opens on Tuesday
