New Images

The past week I have been living in the darkroom working up new images for the group show Aspect: Ratio2 at Irvine Contemorary in Washington DC opening January 24.  If you would like details so you can attend (which I hope you do), please click here.

The image above is a test plate and will not be at Irvine, but another plate measuring 3.5″ high x 24″ long featuring the hummingbird will be and it is a must see.  The creating of this new work has been very stressful because of technical issues.  The time allowed for preparation was very short and although I typically work best under pressure, the back to back issues with things like bad developer, late arrival of chemical resupply, and a major disaster with the final varnishing has really sapped my energy.  There is still work to be done, but when all is finished and the work is hanging the effort, tears, and sleepless nights will be worth it.

See you in DC!
