Founder Heide Hatry is a contemporary fine artist represented by Ubu Gallery in New York City. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world. Hatry’s father’s death at a young age left her with a persistent sense of unresolved grief and a daunting void within. Many years later, after a dear friend had committed suicide, she sought solace through her art practice as a way of coping with this now intensified and fiercely resurfacing grief. Following a sudden inspiration, Hatry decided to make portraits of her father and her friend using their cremated remains. She invented a labor-intensive mosaic technique in which she placed the individual ash particles into a surface of beeswax through several applications until a likeness has been achieved. Her discovery revealed the possibility of a life-altering silent communion.
