In Kloman's oil paintings (most approximately 36" x 36"), origami birds and objects of movement represent the voyage from childhood to adulthood. The birds concurrently signify innocence and independence— juvenescent freedom. The birds portrayed have evolved from her paintings of paper airplanes— youthful vehicles transporting us through juvenility. For her recent series, she has depicted origami objects to express ideas of maturation.
This series illustrates liberation— adolescent self- determination. The elegantly folded birds eloquently convey the transition from formative years to maturity, carrying with it all of its baggage. Kloman wanted to capture that fleeting moment when air lifts delicate paper and the satisfaction of creation is fulfilled, before eventually, inevitably the construction meets ground.
Kloman states: "This duality is a metaphor for individuals struggling with one’s human condition. In a world constantly teetering on the precipice between conflict and peace, I find comfort in viewing the world through a child's eyes of wonder. In my art, the origami objects embody virtuousness and resilience in tandem."
