Exhibition Catalogue- Anita Klein: Together


Together, the title of Anita Klein’s current exhibition, speaks very particularly to this moment in time. It marks
the end of the third national lockdown, the opportunity to see art again in person and a special collaboration
between Watts Contemporary Gallery and Eames Fine Art, who have represented Klein for over twenty years.
Bringing together paintings, prints and works on paper, some from Klein’s archive and many new works
exhibited for the first time, Together reflects on Klein’s experience of the last year, the separation from her
family and friends and joy of seeing them again. In her own words, ‘the pandemic changed all of our lives,
making my obsession with capturing what I would miss if my ordinary life were somehow taken away, relevant
to everyone. My work is a visual diary and a way of counting my blessings, especially for family, friends and
intimate relationships. This past year ‘what I would miss’ has been thrown into sharp focus as ‘what I am
missing’ - closeness to my grown-up children and grandchildren in particular. Together is an exhibition about
that closeness that we treasure and previously took for granted, as we all take a few tentative steps back
into normality’.
