Maysey Craddock

My work is rooted in this place, in images of these in-between spaces in the diminishing wildernesses of southern wetlands. These are places between water and land, edge lands that change and shift with the tides. The work in Vanishing Lands continues to travel these in-between spaces in the diminishing wildernesses of southern wetlands. For this show, I have selected several works on paper referencing the natural environment of the Gulf Coast of Alabama. I work from imagery based on my own photographs of these ephemeral landscapes, from which abstracted drawings are rendered and then transferred onto a substrate of sewn-together fragments of found paper bags. Layers of gouache are laid over the terrain of the paper, conveying atmosphere and a recollection of the story of these spaces. This process of making and unmaking multiplies in materiality and image, mirroring the natural and geological processes that inform my work.
