Kleinsteuber is well known for portraits in which a photo-transfer technique is used, along with charcoal and often bright colours, giving her work a pop art feel. The subject matter of Kleinsteuber’s painting take on a form that is both confrontational and seductive. These portraits are sexy and unapologetic. “I want to push the edges and blur the lines of what society deems as acceptable and tolerable. My personal focus has been to explore the notion of sexuality, that of my own and others. Hense, it becomes a focus that translates into my art practice. I’d like to harness ‘the wandering eye’ and dare viewers to examine their biases and to promote the enjoyment of looking. Looking is complicated of course, but it should be pleasurable. And art is… afterall, about looking. Kleinsteuber’s painting fill the homes of many collectors, worldwide.
