Mayme Kratz creates art from the natural life of the desert that surrounds her Phoenix home and studio.Viewing collecting as a way of archiving memory, she assembles a variety of natural forms such as tangled birds’ nests, feathers, bones, seeds, snakes, and cicada wings, and captures them submerged in resin to create rhythmic, abstract sculptures and reliefs. “My collected specimens celebrate the endless cycles of change and rebirth in nature,”

Speaking about her work Ruth Boerefijn explains how the feel of manuscripts, photographs and maps give her hands something to articulate when later, in the studio, they work knotting and looping lengths of fishing line. It loses form over time, and can be reshaped; it is resilient. The line is a symbol of connection, of reaching into the depths for nourishment.
Using multiple projections, Lindsey Glover transforms the Loft into a space for the exploration between perception, memory and experience. She collects photograph and video images that are later re-examined to find parallels in context, all the while focusing on the capture and storage of time.
