HUDSON RIVER #1
CIRCULAR CYANOTYPE SERIES
21" X 20" floated in black metal frame (15" x 15" unframed)
The cyanotypes combine a spontaneous, and highly process-oriented style of printmaking with one of the oldest alternative photographic processes. The work seeks to break down common methods the viewer uses to categorize images and is influenced by decisions that are unconscious, intuitive, and associative in approach. The results are fragmentary combinations that exert a kind of psychological pressure.
The use of double exposure and divergent imagery speaks to the transient and subjective nature of both time and memory. The blueprints obscure the image and the boundaries of artistic medium, and in so doing ask the viewer to suspend the need to label and compartmentalize the image and the process of creating.
