Maria Kreyn's work is a fusion of the baroque old master technical experience and contemporary psychology. It offers a critique of together-ness in a world where humanity finds itself separate from deep sentiment, and from nature. In this interview she explains what draws her to express as she does in her art. E.g., "Only when an object is full to the brim with meaning can it contribute to sustaining life on this planet. A disposable object is one with little to no meaning. It's a squandering of our precious and beautiful energy. So the making of art has a poignant ethical question inscribed within it. To strive to make a masterpiece is, I believe, to honor yourself and the planet. To make something inspired by nature, to tell a story about it, and to make it truly beautiful and generous in craftsmanship such that it resonate with other souls is the only ethical way to create.
