Friday, July 10th from 3-4pm ArtServe Live presents an art and chat with South Florida art duo KX2: Ruth Avra & Dana Kleinman. KX2 is a collaboration of sisters Ruth Avra and Dana Kleinman, combining their individual artistic strengths to create mathematically inspired sculpture through the fusing of metal and painting. The work is bold and geometric from a distance, yet up close, the textural hand-sanded metal and multi-layered paintings engages the viewer. Through the exploration of geometry, symmetry and connection, their work aims to create a moment of pause, inviting the viewer to escape the stresses of the day and find a space to achieve balance.
Since the establishment of their artistic collaboration in 2007, KX2’s work has been featured in notable galleries and museums around the world. Importantly, the work was catapulted into the international art scene with an invitation to represent the United States at the 2008 Beijing Biennale at the National Art Museum of China. Numerous private, corporate and public art collections throughout North America contain KX2 works of art.
