This week Jade Klara graces us with her winning design Spookasem. Spookasem is an Afrikaans word that translates as “ghost breath”, a fitting title for Ms. Klara’s piece. Her whimsical and transient images seem as light as air, yet they captivate viewers with their strong and adventurous subject matter.
Jade lives in Cape Town, South Africa, where she is currently preparing for her upcoming shows at C.A.V.E. Gallery in Los Angeles in December and at Salon91 Gallery in Cape Town in January 2010. When she needs a break from making amazing art, Jade practices her skateboarding and enjoys the occasional mochi ice cream.
When asked about her art Jade said, “my work is there to create a happy bubble in the pit of your stomach that takes you away from real life things for a little while.” It sure worked on us!
