Carolyn Kleinberger ‘Up Close From A Distance’

This series of portraits addresses the alienation of isolation Carolyn Kleinberger felt during the social distancing of COVID and her drive to recapture a sense of connection with community. She chose models whose faces, personalities and emotions she knows well – friends, children of friends or, in a couple of instances, family. They differ from each other not only in appearance, but also in terms of backgrounds, life experiences, stages of life and approaches to life. As she worked on each painting in her studio, Kleinberger “felt closer to people whom COVID prevented me from embracing in real life.”
