ABOUT YVES KLEIN
Yves Klein, born in 1928 in Nice, began vocationally as a judoka. It was only back in Paris, in 1954, that he dedicated himself fully to art, setting out on his ‘adventure into monochrome’.
By choosing to express feeling rather than figurative form, Yves Klein moved beyond ideas of artistic representation, conceiving the work of art instead as a trace of communication between the artist and the world
Yves Klein’s practice revealed of new way of conceptualising the role of the artist, conceiving his whole life as an artwork. According to him, beauty existed everywhere, but in a state of invisibility.
The artist used blue as the vehicle for his quest to capture immateriality and the infinite. His celebrated bluer-than-blue hue, soon to be named ‘IKB’ (International Klein Blue), radiates colourful waves, engaging not only the eyes of the viewer, but in fact allowing us see with our souls, to read with our imaginations.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Anthony Jenkins lives and creates in rural Mono, Ontario, north of Toronto. For four decades, his editorial illustrations, caricatures and portraits delighted the readers of Canada’s national newspaper, The Globe and Mail.
He has traveled the world with a sketchpad, visiting eighty-three countries to date. His first love is black and white. His later colour work is inspired by the vivid life and hues of the Third World.
In his own words: “A likeness captured is a given. If it may be captured elegantly, in just a few, telling lines that dance and please the eye in their own right, that’s the goal.”
