Maria Tratt, "echo," oil on canvas , 36x36.
echo. opens on Friday March 22nd @8PM
New paintings by Maria Tratt, runs to April 20th.
This new body of work is an investigation into the mutability of memory and how memory is often an assemblage of more than just a single moment. This body of work is a departure from Maria's print practice, and takes her oil painting to a new level. Using photographs of her childhood in Denmark and the Laurentian mountains of Quebec as an starting point, Maria takes these images to the canvas through the veil of remembered experience, a reverberation of space and time, resulting in an etherial, graceful and bewitching show.
