The works of Klemm and Lieberman employ a particular
sort of cast-off material; in Klemm’s case, second hand
stuffed and ceramic animals, and in Lieberman’s, amateur
landscape paintings bought in thrift stores. These are put
into the service of abstraction by way of rearrangement.
For the exhibition Missed Connections, their works have
been brought back from the brink of this abstraction into
a more narrative, domestic tableau.
In addition, each tried their hand at creating from scratch
the materials with which the other works, and in exchanging
these, formed the basis for a pair of collaborative works.
