Light memory dark ground

 

Michael Schlitz’s magical installation goes beyond what we see in the natural world, transforming it into something more miraculous, more telling. It is an amalgam of dreams and natural systems, empirical understanding and emergent lore.

Schlitz is an acclaimed printmaker, using ancient woodcut methods to create his distinctively intricate pieces. This new work extends his methods to encompass chalk, carving, ultraviolet light and a large, organic structure that references natural systems.

Our troubled relationship with the natural world is eloquently addressed and sharply illuminated.

 

Artist: Michael Schlitz
