Danielle Klebes | Home Life

Jun 15, 2024 - Jul 28, 2024

Upstate Art Weekend Kickoff Event:
DVAA and Catskills Pride will host an Artist Mixer with Danielle Klebes on Thursday, July 18th, from 5 to 8 PM.

“Home Life,” is inspired by Klebes’ experience renting a furnished apartment for a few months from a Hemingway-type artist man. Taxidermy of a big horned sheep and a boar adorned the walls, alongside a liquor cabinet that concealed a secret room with stained glass and a large bed. An inexplicable sense of ownership and pride enveloped the artist for that apartment. There was a humorous aspect to a queer female and her queer friends inhabiting that space.

In the current body of work, the artist presents a variety of intimate interior scenes inspired by that apartment. The figures within these scenes exude comfort, allowing themselves to be vulnerable – often lost in thought, naked, surrounded by objects and community within den-like environments.
