CALGARY, Alberta, Canada
As an interdisciplinary artist my practice exists at the crossroads where glassmaking, analog photography, and printmaking intersect. My previous bodies of work explored the optical potential of blown glass in the silver gelatin printing process, with a focus on distorting photographs through the exposure process. Physically overlapping and moving glass during exposure allows the two compositions that emerge to interact with each other in an intimate dialogue that would not be possible through digital methods or even analog double-exposure techniques. The result is a unique process that allows me to recreate the landscapes of my imagination and reality.
These “vitreoscapes” I create are a love letter to the Albertan landscape and the memories I made while being immersed in its sublimity. Within the frame, blown glass plates and lenses turn into images of fleeting clouds and chinooks, creating moments in time that only exist within my mind. Ghostly impressions left by glass on my photo
