The Naturalist

A quick look at the artwork of Mayme Kratz does little to tell the story of her process. The Phoenix artist made a name for herself by building complex environments and diorama-like sculptures with a collection of natural specimens captured in resin. Kratz has an incredible eye for detail and says her collections, which include a variety of bones, shells, beetles, seeds, twigs, leaves, snakes, and wings, are really about recording memory.
