Wednesday 28 June 2017 – Sunday 02 July 2017
Opening Hours: 10am - 6pm

Following the success of Anita Klein’s recent London solo exhibition, Eames Fine Art are thrilled to launch a choice selection of paintings and original prints at Bristol’s Christmas Steps Gallery.

For five days, the intimate space will be filled with energising colour, immersive scale and decisive line; works that awaken the banal and ignite a love for life’s special moments.

Consolidating over 4 decades of work, this exhibition brings together a spectrum of medium; including paintings, lithographs, etchings and linocuts. It opens the door to the everyday moments of brightness and joy that she is internationally recognised.

Positive, real and uplifting, her work reminds us to stop and notice: Notice what makes us smile, the people we love and the memories that matter to us.

“Ravel said he wanted his music to be complex, but not complicated. Anita Klein might say the same of her art. There is a grand simplicity to her works, but that is not the same as saying they lack subtlety and ambiguity. On the contrary, they have the sort of unselfconscious directness that comes from living and breathing art for so long that it becomes second nature” – John Russell Taylor

In today’s art world, we are constantly confronted with visual stimulus, but rarely met with that which evokes such a raw, innate warming response.
