Family Tree Conversations

Two talks by Rafael Klein and two very different conversations - both fascinating. The first of these two scheduled events connected with Family Tree took place in Portsmouth Cathedral when Dean David Brindley displayed his Art History credentials in a discussion about the long and varied part that Cathedrals have played in the commissioning and display of art and how Klein's work interacts with the spaces in which it is shown both physically and spiritually.
The other illustrated talk took place in the gallery and was a veritable crash course in sculptural techniques encompassing lost wax, welding and laser cutting for public commissions. Rafael Klein also talked about his development from painter to sculptor and how the former informs and is essential to the latter. Thanks to all who came to both events.
