Collection: Sarah Klein

Informed by a decade of working in stop-motion animation, Sarah Klein expands on the language of movement with print-based works. Her imagery stems from collages of cut-out paper enhanced with ink painting. She employs silkscreen printing to offset shapes in overlapping and off-kilter arrangements. At its core, her work attempts to grasp order when nothing is fixed, a meditation on time and change. Klein earned her MFA from Mills College. She has been awarded residencies at Djerassi Resident Artist Program, M.H. de Young Museum, Jentel Artist Residency and the Ucross Foundation. She’s received awards from Kala Art Institute, Headlands Center for the Arts, Trust for Mutual Understanding and Zellerbach Family Foundation. She has presented her work at the Exploratorium, Mill Valley Film Festival, Southern Exposure and Telematic in the San Francisco Bay Area; Anthology Film Archives and Transmitter Gallery in New York; Aurora Picture Show in Houston; Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb and Festival Tweetakt in Utrecht. Since 2015, she has managed and curated the San Francisco branch of the Peephole Cinema.
