When art comes off the wall to play in craft, beauty and attention are brought into daily action and routine. Crafts are the current equivalent of items that archaeologists dig up; whole cultures are then imagined from the scraps of these humble objects.

Yupo Paintings: Mapping
"[In her currrent Mapping series] Natalie Sudman has successfully expressed the same sense of vastness and isolation fused with observational annotation that was so much a part of her earlier map series. In this case however, the documentation of lost civilizations has been replaced by the documentation of the process of loss of our own civilization. The scientific annotations that used to represent post holes, petroglyphs and pottery shards in her earlier work, have been replaced by military equipment deployments, disintegrating roads and trajectories of incoming rounds. The inclusion of objective elements such as animals, plants and geography leave us with a more poignant sense of loss while the profound content of these paintings is matched by compositional excellence and simple, beautiful, and yet very contemporary artwork."
