NINA KLUTH + MAJA RUZNIC
19 September – 1 November 2014
born in 1974 in Schwäbisch Hall
Nina Kluth studied at the Hamburg School of Art under Olaf Christopher Jenssen and Werner B¸ttener. Her abstract dynamic-spontaneous painting style follows the tradition of Informal Painting and is a convincing proof of the growing involvement with expressive painting, which has asserted its importance beside Photography, Video and Installation art.
Maja Ruznic was born in Bosnia-Hercegovina in 1983 and came to the United States as a refugee in 1992. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles. Ruznic studied Psychology and Art at UC Berkeley and received her MFA from the California College of the Arts in 2009. Her paintings, drawings and performances explore memory and how it shapes our understanding of reality. Ruznic has exhibited in Germany, France, Texas, Puerto Rico, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Her painting „The Mother of All Evil“ was featured on the cover of New American Paintings in 2011 (Pacific Coast Section, Number 97). Ruznic’s work is included in the Jiminez-Colon Collection (Puerto Rico).
