This technique really frees up my ability to make marks and enlarge them : originally expanded into big prints via an enlarger and a wet photo process , now digitally.
This all started with my desire to break down the formality of photography and paint with light.
Its all about light and at the time I wanted to remove the camera completely from the art making process and simply use light sensitive media.
Unfortunately, I had to stop all this in the late 80’s when I developed allergies to all the chemicals and had to abandon photography and this kind of work altogether.
Red Thing Over Robertson is like a premonition, or a sighting of something anomalous travelling over the landscape.
It’s certainly ominous and the green cast that runs through the background certainly adds to this.
Once again I have referenced the line work of Albrecht Durer’s Apocalypsis cum Figuris woodblock series.
