NEW YORK, NY.- Sikkema Jenkins & Co. announced the representation of Yashua Klos.

A new work by Klos will be on view at Sikkema Jenkins & Co.'s booth at Art Basel in Miami Beach. The artist's first exhibition at the gallery will be held in fall 2022.

Klos’ multimedia practice explores themes of identity, memory, and African Americans' relationship to American labor. His large-scale works are created from the intricate formation of woodblock prints, representing ideas of Blackness through multi-dimensional, fragmented portraits. Unlike traditional collage arranged from ready-made source material, Klos creates all his collage material through woodblock printing and monotypes. His work reimagines the Black body as an alchemical being, surviving and existing within intertwined networks of history, myth, and lived reality.

Klos’ work will be the subject of the major solo exhibition Yashua Klos: OUR LABOUR, at the Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College, on view February 12 - June 12, 2022. Curated by the museum’s director Tracy Adler, the exhibition features new print-based collages, including the titular, Diego Rivera-inspired mural OUR LABOR, along with sculptures created specifically for the show. This Wednesday, December 1, at 1pm Eastern, there will be a virtual preview of the show via Zoom Webinar. Yashua will discuss this new body of work, made specifically for the Wellin exhibition, which will also be on view at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. in fall 2022.

Yashua Klos was born in 1977 in Chicago, IL, and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. His work has been shown in museums and galleries across the U.S. and abroad, including the Studio Museum of Harlem, NY; What If The World Gallery in Johannesburg, South Africa; Tilton Gallery, NY; and UTA Artist Space, Los Angeles, CA. He has been awarded artist residences at Skowhegan, The Vermont Studio Center, and Bemis, and was the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Fellowship and a NYFA Grant.
