The works of micka klauck
are textured in both intellect and medium. Building layer
upon layer, she is able to pull texture out of the drawing,
providing the image's depth of timelessness and history
and sense of stillness.
For the bulk of her inspiration, klauck
looks towards the masks of West Africa and the long, lean
sculptures of Alberto Giacometti. She seeks to distill the
human form into its most raw and unadulterated shape in
an effort to lay bare an unabashed quality of existence.
She favors verticality and leanness in shape, and continues
to explore that notion through the influence of nature as
klauck has followed up her BFA from Moore
College of Art and Design with three years at Fleisher Art
Memorial, studying under Anthony Peter Gorney, and four
years at The Drawing Workshop in Chicago. She continues
to explore various mediums and imagery while continuing
her career as an art director in retail advertising.
