For some reason the coming fall reminds me of Anna Krachey’s work. I think it’s something about the pensive, slightly melancholic mood that wafts through her projects. So it made sense on this cool, slightly gray morning, that her work was exactly what I wanted to see.
The work is divided into five bodies (The Pink Opaque, Land/Landscape, Green Vs. Red, Four Corners, and Trophies) that feel more like related vignettes than entirely separate series. On one hand, there is a material richness in Kracheys work that reveals a deep reverence for the simple shape and feel of things. Yet, on the other these shapes and surfaces are not without context or emotion. Deeply familiar, yet somehow just out of reach, the images feel like found artifacts of a favorite aunt or eccentric cousin without feeling overly nostalgic or precious. Here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!
