A forum specifically for people who want to find a means of dealing with the loss of their pet, and are looking for a comforting solution with the enduring power of art.

Anima in Ash founder Heide Hatry creates portraits out of the cremated remains of their subjects, thematizing and transforming the notion of likeness while hearkening back to what Hans Belting contends is the aboriginal purpose of portraiture: to keep the dead among us in charged ceremonial artifacts.

The experience of families of her subjects strongly suggests an uncanny and consolatory effect that is best understood in terms of a sense of the continuing presence of their dead, the demise of which experience underlies our modern “culture of mourning.”

An open forum in which you are welcome to ask how our memorial portraits are made, and any other questions you might have: How long does it take? How much does it cost? Why do we do this?

It would be great if a few people, who have commissioned an Anima in Ash portrait would tune in and tell others about their experience.
