Announcing Luminiferous: Adventures in Metal

I’m am excited to officially announce my upcoming exhibition, Luminiferous: Adventures in Metal, at the University of Alabama in Huntsville‘s Wilson Hall Gallery from March 7th – 28th, 2016!

I am currently exploring the world of digital photographic transfer techniques reminiscent of old school alternative processes.  By printing onto specially coated transfer film, my images are released onto a variety of substrates with custom made transfer mediums.  This process reiterates the print making pleasures I experienced when creating photo emulsion transfers and lifts with Polaroid film.  At the same time, the superimposing of images to create a final piece emulates the multi-layered, 19th century photographic printing process of Gum Dichromates.  I find myself continually looking to the past to process the present.

Luminiferous: Adventures in Metal, features an image transfer process solely onto metal substrates.  The decision to work with metal is a direct result of searching for the reflective light I once took for granted living near the ocean.

Here is a time lapsed video of my recent full on production mode.  Stay tuned for more info as the exhibition draws near!!
