Sculptress Meredith Dittmar recently opened a new solo exhbition ‘Now You See It Now You Don’t’ at Mexico City’s Fifty24MX Gallery. The forty + works rendered in the unlikely material of colored polymer clay, is executed in a unique style akin to carved reliefs found on the inner walls of temples or within old churches. This choice imbues the work with a sense of reverence for the past, specifically focusing on ideas of nature, the afterlife and personal evolution in the face of peril. Created over a 15-month period that was fraught with intense personal experiences including the death of a parent and the birth of twins, the works explore the cyclical landscape of life and death framed in the vivid colors, patterns and mythology of Mexico.
