Swiss-born artist Emil Michael Kleins (b. 1982) new publication takes large-scale oil paintings he made between 2013 and 2016 and explores each canvas anew through the process of fine art printing. The slender artists book represents a collaboration between designer Teo Schifferli and the artist investigating the contrasting processes of printing and painting. The journey is presented in the featured 30 elegant reproductions. The arterial web of colored lines and monochromatic color fields in Kleins paintings evokes the formal and chromatic effects of printed artwork. Klein, who trained as a wood carver before studying art at HGK, Basel, delves into the similarities and differences between the two artistic media. Grappling with the perennial problems involved in turning originals into reproductions, Paintings asks how images are viewed and disseminated.
