On our bucket list of shows to check out before they come down is Kate Klingbeil's dense and rich Unseen Animal at Steve Turner in LA. Over the last few years, Klingbeil has become more refined in these beautiful and raw layered paintings, actually recreating a sense of soil and earth in each work. What used to be underground in the literal sense, her root people are now emerging from a depth and beginning to interact and grow onto the outside. With each work, you get the sense of slow movement and swelling, as if each hand or body is becoming a plant that is reaching for the sunlight. With the added textures and abundance of materials, each work is a forager's paradise, and each painting feels actually alive. —Evan Pricco
