"Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye--it also includes the inner pictures of the soul."--Edvard Munch
In this body of work, Kline explores various elements of the natural world, an arena full of potential visual metaphors for the spiritual world. These paintings humanize such natural phenomena as a means of interpreting her own emotional states, invariably seeing them in personal terms. For Kline, nature is ultimately a reflection of the spiritual world and a physical mode of communicating what is otherwise intangible.
These paintings find psychological correspondences in elements such as tornadoes, floating clouds, sun rises, and fire. Her use of the human figure mirrors the earth's topography, creating imagery that evokes references to both the domains of body and landscape.
Poetic emotion is a continuous thread in her work--emotion that is at once personally driven but universally understood.
