Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Long After Forever, an exhibition of recent art by Mayme Kratz.
Kratz's stunning mixed-media artworks give prominence to the natural world and the various life cycles that define its rhythms and beauty. Each piece features a dynamic composition of plant matter and animal bones, which she collects in and around her home of Phoenix, Arizona, and during adventures farther afield. Central to her work is an evocative layering in which natural materials are arranged to echo larger natural phenomena, such as glittering night skies and constellations, heavenly starbursts, secret gardens, intricate bird's nests, and exotic archipelagos. Encased in layers of colored resins that Kratz sands down to a smooth, matte finish, the natural materials are not only memorialized but also transformed and reanimated, their beauty and evanescence given new meaning and life.
