ALCHEMY OF NATURE: Diana Bloomfield, Christine Fitzgerald, Bob Carnie

10 September - 23 October 2022

Alchemy of Nature features recent works by artists Diana Bloomfield, Bob Carnie and Christine Fitzgerald created using 19th century photographic processes to explore the natural environment. Photography is now largely a dematerialized pursuit using digital devices such as smartphones to take and distribute images. These three artists value the historical continuity of photography by reviving and adapting antiquated methods to create unique hand-printed physical objects. By bringing back to life techniques from photographyʼs past and exploiting modern technology, these artists push the boundaries of their medium to address environmental precarity through the lens of human experience.
