About the Item
Cridler's work references patterns and cycles in the natural world, employing symbolic forms like vessels and trees, suggesting our desire to collect and contain. This series explores interdependency. We often think of ourselves as apart from the world, yet we are of this very nature that we are changing. In the Remain series, the vessel grows around and through sections of trees, rather than the pattern of nature accomodating our presence. A hopeful speculation, reframing our relation with nature as relation rather than mere resource.

About the Artist
Trained as a metalsmith, Cridler was an undergrad at the University of Michigan and earned an MFA in Metals from the SUNY New Paltz. She has applied my use of steel, structure and ornament in large-scale art projects and commissions as well as maintaining a studio practice. Physically and conceptually Cridler appreciates how the modest and repetitive tasks that comprise a life can be both transformative and generative.
