ArtScene Reviews Mary Austin Klein's Latest Show at Sue Greenwood Fine Art
We're thrilled to share that Mary Austin Klein's current show Into the Blue will be featured in the July/August issue of ArtScene. To read the full review by Liz Goldner, click HERE.
"While the Southern California landscape has inspired generations of artists to interpret its natural beauty in numerous ways, Mary Austin Klein’s take on this scenario is unusual. Her paintings are as small as 6 by 8 inches, with the largest being 24 by 36 inches, and they are imbued with meticulous details of rocks, mountains, trees, skies, even airplanes, a few dessert homes and the especially the radiant dessert light. She is also interested in what she calls, “the latent history of geologic features.” And we do feel that these rocks, mountains and vistas have vastly preceded humankind’s presence. She uses tiny brushes for the details and paints on Dura-Lar sheets, which prevents the oil from spreading. We feel like we are looking through a small window out at the vastness of the universe."
