Artist Statement: In this mini-retrospective, I’m showing works from my past that speak to me now. A love of paper, watercolor, painting, and photography found expression in two venerable hand-applied 19th century light-sensitive processes: cyanotype and gum bichromate. For 20 years I controlled light with 8x10 inch pinhole negatives. I contact-printed them onto sensitized paper in the sun and developed sequential layers in water in the bathtub. Then came the digital revolution and I was privileged to use an image setter at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia which produced much larger negatives. Now the image setter is obsolete and I am retired from teaching. At home, I use the simplest light resists: ferns and window screen combined with drawing and painting.
