Photography Exhibition at Transformer Station


Process and Abstraction
Jessica Eaton, Mariah Robertson and Alison Rossiter
Transformer Station
Opens Feb 7, reception at 7pm

Transformer Station is pleased to present work by three artists who have developed techniques and processes unique to them, resulting in stunning abstractions that challenge popular conceptions of photography.

For Jessica Eaton’s series Cubes for Albers and Lewitt (cfaal), the artist photographs grayscale cubes through combinations of red, green and blue lens filters, using motion and multiple exposures to create increasingly complex forms that defy the logic of time and space.

Mariah Robertson experiments with chemical treatments in the darkroom to produce genre-defying work. Essentially painting with chemicals on hundred-foot rolls of photo paper, the artist then drapes and folds the paper to create sculptural installations.

Alison Rossiter’s recent series FOURS features minimal yet bold geometric abstractions made by dipping long-expired photo paper in developer to create lines and tones.

Together these artists demonstrate how following the inherent logic of the medium results in what Robertson has described as “impossible images”: photographs that don’t feel like photographs.

The show runs from Saturday, February 7 through Sunday, May 2nd. Opening will have food, drink and also tunes provided by DJ Eff.
