ravenously, gone, still is derived from a larger body of work that photographer Madeline Cass began in 2023. Each composition begins with a found image which is then printed on canvas. Cass hand-paints the printed canvas with acrylics and watercolors, exploring the phenomenological aspects of color and material within the realm of her expanded photography practice. The series is influenced by her research into the effects of climate change on wildfires and the prescribed burns used to control them. Through interacting with the natural environment in unexpected ways and inviting others to join, she offers alternative pathways into our collective ecological awareness.

Madeline Cass (b. 1993) was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska and received her BFA in studio art with an emphasis in photography from the University of Nebraska in 2017. Her work examines the multitude of relationships between art, science, nature, and humanity. Cass’s self-published book how lonely, to be a marsh has been collected by institutions including The Museum of Modern Art Library, The National Gallery of Art Library, The Getty Research Institute Library, and The Museum of Fine Arts Houston’s Hirsch Library. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, National Geographic, and Vogue, among others. In April 2024 she was an artist-in-residence at The Tallgrass Artist Residency in the rural community of Matfield Green, Kansas near the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. She is currently working on a book about extinct birds and natural history museum collections.
