Four of my artist colleagues gave me permission to reprint the work they made for our collaborative book with a theme of Distance. (See my last post if this is confusing.)
Isn't it cool how different they all are? Yes, I think so too.
ADAM SHOT THIS PHOTO ONE SUNDAY AFTERNOON DURING A VERY VERY LONG WALK. HE MADE A CHEAP DIGITAL PRINT, THEN USED GEL MEDIUM TO TRANSFER THE PRINT TO COTTONY PAPER. IT'S A TIME-INTENSIVE PROCESS, AND HE HAD TO DO EACH OF 12 PRINTS IN THIS METHODICAL WAY.
AMBER CREATED THIS COLLAGE IN WHICH "DISTANCE" SPEAKS TO HOW HER FATHER WAS IN THE MILITARY DURING HER UPBRINGING. SHE USED A DIGITAL PROCESS CALLED XANTE TO CREATE PART OF THE IMAGERY HERE, THEN INKED AND PRESSED BY HAND.
LISA IS A PHOTOGRAPHER AND A RUNNER. HERE, SHE INKED UP HER RUNNING SHOES AND RAN ACROSS ABOUT 7 FEET OF CRAFT PAPER. THEN SHE SCANNED THE PAPER AND REDUCED THE IMAGE IN SIZE, REPRINTING HERE DIGITALLY.
LUCY'S YOUNG LIFE HAS BEEN PUNCTUATED BY TRAIN TRIPS, AND SHE HAS A COLLECTION OF PHOTOS OF THE TRAINS. SHE DID THIS COOL PHOTO MONTAGE FROM THOSE.
