People in flux serve as the main subjects for Danielle Klebes's work. The figures, captured in moments of uncertainty and isolation, are close in proximity but emotionally distant. They are positioned in liminal natural environments—the sun is setting or storms are approaching—with no clear entrance or exit pathway. There is a sense of the in between without a clear narrative of what comes next. Danielle employs a cool, colorful, and unnatural palette to highlight disconnection and lack of intimacy. The paintings are not specifically narrative, but they include pictorial clues to the experience of the subjects. 


Danielle Klebes has exhibited in Istria, Croatia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Massachusetts, Colorado, and Florida. Danielle has an upcoming two-person exhibit at the Susquehanna Museum of Art in Harrisburg, PA. Currently, she works in a group show at Helikon Gallery in Denver, CO. Danielle received her MFA in Visual Arts from Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge, MA.
