Memento Vitae, the latest exhibit held at AKA Creative, features some impressive works by two artists from the Charlotte community. Lydia Jean Goldbeck paints large, rustic portraits of folks on warped canvases. She does so without glossing over the pain and suffering of everyday existence, shown through figures that seem melancholy and somewhat void. Meanwhile, Sara Catapano sculpts strange pieces inspired by exotic species and fragile organisms found in nature.
