Mai Wyn Schantz

Mai has been painting on metal, first aluminum and now stainless steel, for over twenty years. Initially drawn to the material because of its slickness as a painting surface, she soon recognized it as a means to capture nature in a contemporary context. By exposing areas of the raw metal substrate, a unique juxtaposition results between the industrial material and her nature-based subject matter.

Despite our high tech, modern world we are still innately tied to the land. Her paintings are about this relationship. They are an exploration of our evolving and often tenuous union with nature as well as our inherent desire to connect with it.
