I have been continuing to add to my body of work known as “Blue Renewal,” which I started several years ago. There are about 25 or more pieces that are currently a part of this alternative photographic processes project, and I will continue to add pieces at the end of this year or next year as I focus more on completing the project.
The first pieces in the series have a murky, ocean feel, with the blue-green color of the inkjet prints of cyanotype-on-silk fabric enhancing the feeling of loss that anyone experiences. Over time, I have expanded on the theme, recognizing that over time, I have learned from the losses in life, with the pieces having a richer blue color, and reflecting abstract images of hope or renewal that I have experienced with the passage of time.
I have been juried into The Gallery at el Pedregal, Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ. A number of pieces in my series, “Blue Renewal,” are now on display and for sale at The Gallery. The work will be on exhibit from November 2017 through February 2018. One of the pieces from the exhibit is a part of this post.
