STRATA: Marie Lorenz, Katy Fischer, Max Warsh

The artists featured in STRATA, Marie Lorenz, Katy Fischer and Max Warsh, collect and arrange artifacts from the urban environment—river flotsam, ceramic shards, and architectural details—through various modes of discovery. They use their collections as source material for multilayered, abstract compositions that reframe our familiar surroundings and challenge the division between man-made and organic in favor of a more seamless view of the material world.
