KX2 - Currents Triptych, 2021

KX2 / Ruth Avra and Dana Kleinman

Geometric abstraction

January 25, 2021

KX2 is a collaboration between artists and sisters Ruth Avra and Dana Kleinman, known for their mathematically inspired sculpture merging metal and painting. Bold and geometric from a distance, the work engages the viewer up close through its textural hand-sanded metal and multi-layered paintings. The goal of their most recent works is to raise awareness of the fragility of our natural ecosystems by exploring a variety of themes related to environmental issues. Conscious of their material choices, KX2 uses up to 50% recycled metals and recycled canvas. Avra and Kleinman established their artistic collaboration in 2007 and currently reside with their individual families in Southern Florida.
