Klin’s work–fiction and nonfiction–has been featured on Public Radio International’s Studio 360 and has appeared in the Brooklyn Rail, the Atlantic, the Forward, Flyover Country Review, Adelaide, NPR’s All Things Considered and others.
The paintings, prints, and watercolors in Wild World explore the power of the gestural mark inspired by nature . Ashley Garrett‘s oil paintings depict deep spaces disturbing the lines between “inside” and “outside”. Catherine Howe‘s bold monotypes draw upon botanical forms. And Lily Prince‘s vibrating watercolor landscapes explore the line between light and color with energetic brushwork. Overall, the three artists reflect on nature in their paintings with a distinctive gestural calligraphy.
