About

Photography by Jan J. Klos An exhibition curated by Franco La Russa 30th March - 5th May 2013 Private view:à‚ Friday 29th March 7pm - 9pm HAVE YOU SEEN THE GREEN? is a new photography series by emerging artistà‚  Jan J. Klos. Exploring the problematic relationship between man and nature, the exhibition is a striking collection of images that examine the natural world ripped-up, displaced and existing in man-made spaces.à‚  In spite of our move from natural environments to congested cities, we have brought nature with us — or, at the very least, allowed some memory of it to flourish. A potted plant provides homely comfort for some; a giant tree stands proudly in the grounds of others. In all cases we exert our power over nature as best we can — tearing it from the ground to imprison in vases; trimming and cutting it back; forcing it to grow bigger and brighter.à‚  But, left unchecked, nature quietly threatens to once more overtake us in a revolt that aims to destroy all we have built. HAVE YOU SEEN THE GREEN? exposes the complexities of man's relationship with the natural world and finds that it is just as much rooted in life and nurture as it is in death and destruction. à‚  Jan J. Klos is a young artist photographer whose work explores communities, societies and the complexities of human behaviour. His work has been shown in Quad, Derby; Lighthouse, Wolverhampton; and MAC, Birmingham. He has also contributed to Wallpaper* Magazine.à‚  For more information or to arrange an interview with Jan please contact:à‚  Drew Jerrison: drewjerrison@gmail.com / 07963 602378 / www.janklos.com Alternatively contact à‚ cueB Gallery: Franco La Russa atà‚ info@cuebgallery.com
