By Melissa Murray in New Art on Thursday 24 May 2012

I came across Maria Kondratiev’s work a few years back at the Camel Art Space in Brooklyn and have been an admirer ever since. I was so taken by her sensitivities to dream-state narratives, her mastering of endless mediums, and in her talent for creating explicit depth in simplicity.
