Artist Profile: Alexandra Klimas

Alexandra Klimas was born in the Netherlands where she continues to live and works today. From an early age, Klimas was concerned with the fate of these good-natured beasts as she thinks they represent what happiness is supposed to look like, almost manifesting themselves as human characters with their emotions reduced to a primary level.

Klimas’s spotlight brings the living actuality of these thinking beings roaring back into the forefront of the mind. Animals have spent most of their time as accessories but the time and detail within these paintings gives Klimas’s unlikely subjects the dignity and grace of a monarchic state portrait and through the eyes of Alexandra Klimas’s animals, it’s humanity that is under the microscope.
