Artist Espen Kluge Debuts Generative Portrait Series “Alternatives” at Kate Vass Digital

We are thrilled to announce that Kate Vass Galerie will be representing the work of Norwegian digital artist Espen Kluge. In his recent interview with Kluge, senior curator for Kate Vass Galerie Jason Bailey called Kluge “an artist’s artist” and compared his work to the Russian constructivist Naum Gabo with “a touch of mid-century modern of symmography.” As part of this interview, Bailey has carefully curated several works by Kluge to debut with the Kate Vass Galerie. These include the three portraits below available as archival single-edition prints exclusively from Kate Vass Galerie.

As part of our commitment to digital art and to emerging collectors for whom printing, framing, and shipping can be cost prohibitive, we are also making a series of five works by Kluge, specially curated by Jason Bailey, available in our new Kate Vass Digital store. These works are tokenized on the Ethereum blockchain, have been uploaded to IPFS for decentralized storage, and come with a certificate of authentication from Kate Vass Galerie.

The first of these works, cruise ships and police cars, will be auctioned this week with no reserve price to enable everyone to have an opportunity to participate.
