Rybee House

Stephen A. Klema - Winsted, CT
Wood and paint - 10’ x 6.5’ x 6.5’

Stephen A. Klema’s work consists of outdoor sculpture fabricated using overlapping and interlocking stained and painted wood elements. Klema’s artistic language is defined by reducing complex visual information into a more simple graphic vocabulary with definable shapes and coherent forms, and frequently includes referencing organic and found objects—an animal, a raindrop, a tool. Rybee House invites participation and curiosity as four unique sides encourage the viewer to explore it from a variety of angles. Klema’s work is designed using software and then fabricated with traditional building materials such as wood and metal. Klema’s process is deeply rooted in his own labor, and the materials and tools needed to produce an outcome—how a material can be bent, cut and shaped by a tool to create great detail and sophistication provides opportunity for artistic satisfaction.
