Susan Klein

Susan Klein’s work plays with the idea of American spirituality. She makes sculpture, paintings, and works on paper that repurpose religious and ritualistic imagery to serve a secular spiritualism that is part of contemporary American culture. Klein uses a specific system of symbols that shifts from funny and playful to commemorative and serious. The work references history, artifact, decoration, architecture, and pop culture.

Susan Klein has exhibited work at Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art – College of CharlestonCrossing Collective, New York City; and Redux Contemporary Art Center, Charleston, among others.
