All Men By Nature Desire To Know: Featured Artist: Flora Klein 07 January 2017

Flora Klein was born in 1988 Bern, Switzerland, she currently lives and works in Berlin. She Graduated with a BA in Fine Arts at ECAL, Lausanne in 2013.

Layers of acrylics are used to build up abstract blocks of colour with contrasting strands spreading across the top of the base layers like ribbons. Although Klein’s work is easy to identify in style (the paintings often share a palette of bold oranges, browns and reds, and recurring lines and shapes can also be found between the works), none of the works have a clear subject or even a main focal point. 

As a result, a lot of the meaning is left up to the viewer – the paintings don’t immediately suggest a clear emotion, are neither masculine or feminine, and the titles don’t give many clues either…

We are delighted to be launching our 2021/22 season with a solo exhibition spanning 50 years of work by Andrew Logan, one of Britain’s most iconic artists.

– Please do not visit the gallery if you have COVID-19 symptoms, are self-isolating, or have been in contact with someone who has coronavirus. Follow the NHS coronavirus guidelines.

– We recommend that you download the NHS COVID-19 app in advance of your visit and check in via the QR code when you arrive.

– Entry to the gallery is via the main entrance of the Bonington Building and floor markers will assist with social distancing. Please ‘check-in’ to the main building on arrival via the NHS app, and sanitise your hands.

– We recommend that face masks or coverings are worn upon entrance to the building and gallery. There are some free masks available within the building if you forget.

– 2m social distancing is advised inside the gallery, as it is throughout the building and campus. Please follow signage and wayfinding measures to adhere to best routes throughout the building and gallery.

Contact areas in the gallery, such as doors and handrails, will be subject to cleaning throughout the day. An enhanced cleaning regime is in place across all University buildings.
Clear signage at the gallery entrance will outline the key measures we are adhering too. Please refer to these for guidance. A gallery assistant will also be on hand to help.
