Paige Kleinfelder is an artist from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. She works primarily in oil paint focusing on post-industrial objects through the lens of the aesthetic. Her previous exhibits include the Hoyt Center for the Arts (New Castle, PA), the Houghton Gallery (Corning, NY) and the George Waters Gallery (Elmira College, Elmira, NY).
The subjects of my current work are abandoned buildings and structures that I view as the physical memories of the cities in which they are located. Memory is selective and never as exact as the actual event, but are still present and embraced. Likewise, these buildings are no longer pristine or functioning, yet remain present and part of the urban environment.
