Klibansky’s main points of departure are architecture and the city, particularly the accelerated, compressed and densely populated urban environments of the 21st Century that he smoothly grades into what seems to be a possible glimpse of the future.
The often-perceived soothing prettiness of Klibansky’s work can be experienced as positively numbing the senses of the viewer. An image that in first instance looks harmless and merely pretty is actually a smoke curtain for the real matter at hand, an open mind can attempt to peel back the multi coloured layers of eye candy and distil the core of the message.
Joseph Klibansky makes large-scale, idealistic digital paintings that are built up through hundreds of layers of photography enriched with acrylic paint on archival cotton paper overlaid with a liquid resin. His work conveys a layering and compression of time, space and place creating new narratives by creating dreamy images of cities, combining past and future, with a dramatic dynamism that for the artist becomes a way of signifying his perception of the rapidly changing digital culture as well as suggesting an unravelling of his personal biography.
