A SUSPENSION OF STEREOTYPIC PERCEPTION | WEST GALLERY | AUGUST 15 - SEPTEMBER 14, 2019
This work is an exploration of a documentary subject using an alternative, historic process, the wet collodion process, which is a technique I’ve begun exploring. Funding support for my artist’s expenses to Tunxis Community College from Edward C. & Ann T. Roberts Foundation, and from the President’s Discretionary Fund at Tunxis CC, has made it possible for me to pursue this exhibition. My family and my own personally-held beliefs are what guided my exploration. I set out to create work that is handcrafted and combines the look of both historical and contemporary images, while interlacing different photographic techniques and multimedia.
