Klein was a master at visionary manifestation in a great many mediums. minimalist 'composition', judo, painting... i think he may have been a true alchemist & he did so much in his short stay here on earth. i particularly enjoy the anthropométries & his utilization of natural elements as 'living brushes' like rain, nude female bodies & of course fire. i am no expert but once again Janas, you share essential pieces of the very best things in life. thanks for being
