Silver Sun Afterglow transforms the gallery using hand cut paper in a range of painting color patterns and effects. These intricately cut paper silhouettes become a hybrid of natural and synthetic form—a loosely-faceted environment evolving within a fantastical trajectory. This exhibition responds to Natrop’s obsession with post-apocalyptic sentiments, specifically his current disillusionment with water resources. The installation takes shape through an array of cut-paper formations: various ceiling-hung conglomerations, site-specific wall reliefs, and interrelated framed works.

Silver Sun Afterglow is an irrepressible tangle of life, a hybrid-world twisting and clinging to its sterile confines: a fractured landscape in the natural process of reconfiguration.
