Photographer Chris McCaw has released a new series of original work, based on paper negatives, long exposures, and the sun burning its way across the image.
The show runs December 15, 2009 through January 9, 2010.
Opening reception for artist, Tuesday, December 15, 2009, 7-9 pm.
This series is titled P.O.P., and is made using an arcane photographic paper that was popular in the early 1900’s. The paper’s common name is “Printing Out Paper.” This paper produces beautiful, ethereal prints with a range of colors from deep magenta, violet or brownish tint.
The subtle color hues in each piece are quite different in each piece as a result of the paper, the hand processing and the gold toning of each image during processing.
Due to the scarcity of this paper, this series is currently limited to 14 pieces. As each piece is the actual negative that was placed in the camera, they are one-of-a-kind and cannot be reproduced.
The gallery has a concurrent exhibition, Frank Paulin “Color Works”, in our North and East galleries.
Thursday through Saturday
11am – 6pm and by appointment
