Interview with David Klamen by Russell Panczenko

Chicago-based artist David Klamen fuses op-art effects with art historical images to create high impact and engaging artworks. Looking like obsessive crosses between bar codes, puzzles, and old master paintings, these works plead to be interpreted through a dizzying kaleidoscope of colors and shapes.

David Pagel writes art criticism for the Los Angeles Times and is assistant professor of art theory and history at Claremont Graduate University. Russell Panczenko is director of the Elvehjem Museum of Art.
