This series include titles such as the assassination of the sea, Lobster claw and Looking down at the sea . These paintings are part of the Painteress series of conceptual art in oil that also have the “special sauce glazes.” The assaults on the livelihood of New England’s lobstermen combined with the death of the sea due to pollution are symbolized by the bullet holes and bow and arrow shots in the paintings.
Due to the many layering of paint in this series, the viewer can see the amount of struggle and experimenting Klementovich went through to give a luminous feel to the New England waters and the difficulties of a Lobsterman’s life.
Duchamp’s works at the Normandy Coast show in Portland Museum, and Giacometti’s shifting impressionistic portraits have influenced Klementovich. She has achieved an ethereal like abstract commentary in paint of the New England seacoast and lively hood.
Special note- My nephew ben shot some of these pieces with steel tipped arrows. One shot when through the art, a slug and a bale of hay. You know it is true because you can’t make that stuff up.

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”

Leonardo Da Vinci-

I find this true for painting, flying and swimming. Photo taken at Rock River, Willliamsville Vermont
