Beauty is an emergence marked by the experience of being unable to fully capture it with the aperture or finite attention of the human gaze. This experience … is greater than what we are able to comprehend in any one moment. It therefore always exceeds us in either time, space, or both. — Seffa Klein
As a young child growing up in northern Arizona, artist Seffa Klein (b.1996) would gaze at the star-studded night sky with a deep sense of wonder. As a student at UCLA, she studied astrophysics and art, recognizing the inherent harmony that exists between the two disciplines. As a professional artist, her multidisciplinary practice includes paintings composed with elemental metals, sculptures built with her SK Brick, drawing, installation, writing, and music.
Klein plays with scale in her work, from vast planetary models of astronomy and astrophysics to the microscopic dimension of quantum mechanics. Her art has been exhibited in solo and group shows from Los Angeles to New York City, and is dedicated to envisioning “beautiful new ideologies, structures, and shapes, both physical and internal, for humanity’s uplifted future.”
