Artists: Thomas Condon & Juan Manuel Fernandez
Venue: Gallery 1/1 / 2221 NW 56th St
Event: March 15th 6pm - 9pm
Showing: March 15th - May 12th
GALLERY 1/1 is excited to present the Seattle debut of artists Thomas Condon and Juan Manuel Fernandez who each have a unique approach to creating hand-made photographic prints. Tom combines his training as a painter with an experimental “chemigram” technique, which utilizes hand-applied photochemistry to light-sensitive silver-gelatin paper create new - rather than reveal existing - images. Juan puts a contemporary twist on the historic wet plate collodion process to create photogram tintypes of complex geometric designs that are cameraless images made using darkroom techniques to produce the illusion of depth and dimension. These creations were inspired by trying to see the world through his kid's inquisitive eyes.
Join us for the Opening Reception on Thursday, March 15th from 6-9 p.m. during the Ballard Night Out. The exhibition runs through Saturday, May 12th.
Ballard Night Out is presented by Greater Ballard Arts - supporting arts and cultural events in Ballard's 98107 & 98117 zip codes.
