Moran Kliger

Written by Estee Balsam

Moran Kliger produces works, based largely on figurative drawing, with an uncompromising aesthetic. Kliger’s act of drawing is a narrative one, unfolding memories, dreams, fears and desires onto the surface of the paper.

By means of a graphic, illustrative line, the artist arranges her figures in depicted moments that defy any and all definition, yet they create a sense of familiarity and compassion. Through various techniques, she portrays human expressions, gestures and positions inbred with animal characteristics.

In her work, Kliger introduces strength, on the one hand, and vulnerability on the other, blurring the boundaries between that which is perceived as cultured, civilized, and human, and that which is considered to be a more wild, instinctive and animalistic side of human nature.
