About

What began in 2010 as a study of the structure of plants and flowers, Karl Klingbiel’s plant drawings reveal detail and form in nature. Fascinated with the complexity of plants and rendering them, Karl describes a rich relationship between the drawings and his abstract paintings. Karl Klingbiel, plant drawing #2, SF, 2015 is an original drawing from the Plant Series. The drawing, graphite on Strathmore etching paper, is a study of plant life rendered in great detail by a modernist's eye. The elegant black-and-white piece represents a complicity with while a respite from abstraction. Karl Klingbiel was born in Detroit in 1961. In 1978 he began exhibiting his work at only 17 years old in a group show of printmakers at the Detroit Institute of Arts. He attended Yale, majored in studio art and graduated in 1983, with residencies at the House Scholar residency at Yale (1982-1983) and the Ethel Battel Stoekel Residency in Norfolk, Connecticut (1982). His work has been shown regularly in New York, San Francisco, Munich, and Dresden, including museum shows at the Rose Museum at Brandeis, The Albright College Center for the Arts, among others. Museum collections also include The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Yale University Art Gallery, The Niagara University Collection, and the New York Public Library. His work is in private and corporate collections, including Agnes Gund and the Winter Group. He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
