Gum Bichromate over Cyanotype

In November 2017, I participated in the artist-in-residence program at Dorland Mountain Arts Colony in Temecula, CA. While there, I photographed the landscape in Dorland and Joshua Tree National Park. Without having access to a darkroom; I utilized the intense desert sun to create cyanotypes in response to the environment. The fragile dry landscape is made up of a fascinating unique variety of plants and surreal geologic features. These attributes are visual historic records of the changing desert landscape and I am drawn to its otherworldly feeling. The more recent cyanotypes and gum bichromate images were created at Kala Art Institute where I am a current artist-in-residence.
