Inspired by Sarah Van Keuren, Sandra C. Davis, from Philadelphia, PA, USA prints gum bichromates, made from a single grayscale digital negative. They have 4-6 layers of color each.
From: Burlington, NJ near Philadelphia, PA, USA.
Shows: Gum bichromates.
Sandra’s haunting imagery is about capturing remembered moments from the past. Working in several bodies of work, she explores history by photographing what remains from previous eras. Through the unique way she edits the landscape and by printing the images in various alternative processes, she makes them her own vision, creating an illusory veil of dreaminess.
“I print my Mythical Gardens Series in the gum bichromate process because I enjoy the tactile sense of making a unique image. With each layer of color, the image evolves. I continue to be amazed at every step along the way.”
