Come on out and join us for the 2014 Jersey City Studio Tour! I’ll be presenting a group of four Chemigrams in conjunction with Liv Art’s Speakeasy Studios Show. The series entitled “faerie wings” harkens a reexamination of the elusive and immaterial. Made through a process of exposing photosensitive paper to B&W dark room chemicals – a chemigram is considered an alternative photo print. And while not new, has only recently been recognized in major museum and gallery shows. The series was made at the Manhattan Graphics Studio dark room. Major thanks to Douglas Collins and Rich Turnbull for their instruction in alternative photo printing.
