About the Item: Rhino Rib is an acrylic on canvas painting that is part of Daniel Klewer’s series “Linear Tactility.” The artist begins with a minimalist template—lines of paint on a canvas. However, the work belies minimalism with its attention to texture and lush color. The artist moves away from a brushed application of paint. The raised lines of paint have a tactile and sculptural effect, blurring the line between painting and sculpture. The sculptural paint seems to reach out toward the viewer, while the color draws the eye back to the surface of the painting. The raised lines of paint also cast shadows, enhancing the sculptural nature of the work and constantly changing the work’s color and the viewer’s experience of it. Klewer investigates the visual and psychological resonance of color relationships in his work. The works’ titles are also a significant part of the work. Klewer chooses evocative words that are at once random and intentional. The resultant titles add another dimension to the interpretation of the paintings. Rhino Rib evokes the tactility of animal skin and bone and the canvas’ tondo shape seems to add an organic quality to the work.

Klewer says about his work: “Light and color are driving forces in my work as I explore chromatic and tonal shifts. Primarily using a brushless paint application, the textured surfaces of the paintings document investigations in the relationship between paintings and sculpture. My work flows between vibrant spontaneity and meditative minimalism while delving into ideas of inner contemplation.”
