Dr. Letha Ch'ien, Assistant Professor of Art History, interviewed London-based artist Natalia González Martin.  Natalia explores the connection between past and present by using medieval and Renaissance iconography in her paintings that blur the line between past and present. Martin likes to plumb religion's ritualization of the everyday, something she has called "one of the best marketing strategies I’ve seen." The paintings in the show "Las Soledades" refer to the Desert Mothers, early Christian women ascetics who sought out a life of solitude in the wilderness by choice. Click here for more info.
