South Shore Art Produce at Machete Machete

Last night we attended the opening of Nadine Donath‘s exhibition of cyanotype prints, “Not Here Either”, at Machete Machete Gallery, during the last Art Thursday event of the 2010-2011 season.

Donath’s dozens of mysterious, watery ‘photograms’ in hundreds of shades of cobalt blue, were created with tiny snippets of plants and trees from around the ARTfarm and nearby pastures. Viewing the work was oddly personal, it seemed like a family photo album to us.

Donath, a native of Berlin and resident of New York City, has been here on St. Croix for a month. As an artist in residence at Thomas Shelley’s Machete Machete Gallery, she has been producing her own work, giving a workshop on cyanotype printing, and just learning about and enjoying the microcosm of St. Croix.

We purchased two prints. At $100 each, you’d do well to purchase four or six of these beautiful little images and frame them together as a little visual poem of the wilds of St. Croix. Donath heads off the rock this Saturday, but the show hangs through July. Get yourself over to Machete Machete on Company Street on your lunch hour or for one of their hipster movie nights and enjoy this cool blue show.
