‘Threnody’, which means a lament, is a love-lorn image. Esteemed artist Deborah Klein envisions a woman striding through a black-and-white rain slicked city, her ruby heart dashed in her hand. Anyone who has taken a walk to mend a broken heart, or reminisced on lost love on their commute home will find company in ‘Threnody’.
Represented at National Gallery of Australia and National Gallery of Victoria, Klein has won the Grand Prize, Silk Cut Award for Linocut Printmaking. In 2008 the survey show ‘Deborah Klein: Out of the Past 1995 - 2007’ toured to Castlemaine Art Gallery and Historical Museum, the Art Gallery of Ballarat, Warrnambool Art Gallery and Deakin University Art Gallery, Victoria.
For collectors of contemporary prints, this stylish linocut finds beauty in the twists and turns of a romantic life.
