Alison Rossiter: Lost and Found

The gallery is pleased to present our third exhibition with Alison Rossiter, which concentrates on her found photograms that exist as latent images until they are processed using darkroom chemistry.

ALISON ROSSITER
Lost and Found

Exhibition Dates: September 22 – October 20, 2012
Reception for the Artist: Saturday, September 22, 2-5pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, September 22, 1-2pm (RSVP as seating is limited)

Working under the safelight, while in the developer, abstract images appear on surfaces of the various types of photo papers that Alison Rossiter has collected from hundreds of sources; some more than 100 years older than the expiration date printed on their packages. For Rossiter, a select few of those processed produce aesthetically pleasing results. The images formed are the result of the organic components of the gelatin silver papers decaying over time. Some are reminiscent of 20th Century art practice while others are arrangements of fingerprints of long deceased photographers, making this project one about archeology as well as art.

 
Ansco Cyko, expired May 1918, processed 2012, diptych
Her simple working style – buying previously opened packages of old darkroom papers and processing them without exposing them to light – belie the sophistication of these images. Indeed, it is her mastery of photographic technique that coaxes the richly dense blacks, the impressive grey tones, as well as the clean whites that produces such exquisite results. Finally, it is also her ability to recognize excellence in a handful of successes that makes this work an exceptional homage to the medium of photography.



Eastman Kodak Bromesko (London), exact expiration date unknown, ca. 1940’s, processed 2011

Born Jackson, Mississippi, 1953, Rossiter has worked with the materials and processes of light sensitive, gelatin silver based photography since 1970. The darkroom is essential to her work process, whether it involves the traditional printing of negatives, drawing with flash lights, or making photograms. In 2003, she immersed herself into the field of photographic conservation as a volunteer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, which led to a profound appreciation of the history of photographic materials.



USSR paper, expired 1957, processed 2010

For over three decades, she has been exhibited by many major institutions around the world and her work has been collected by important private and public institutions such as: National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; Nelson/Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City; The Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia; Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver; amongst others.

Join Us for the Queen West Art Crawl

We are happy to announce that we will once again be participating in the Queen West Art Crawl. Please join us on Saturday, September 15th and Sunday, September 16th for your last chance to see our summer exhibition, "First Photographs," which was co-curated by Rare Photo Gallery and Stephen Bulger Gallery.

This exhibition of over 50 vintage prints, from a wide variety of makers, concentrates on photographs of North American Indigenous Peoples. Early ethnographic photography is a hybrid of fact and fiction; however an appreciation for their unique qualities as historical artifacts enables the viewer to move beyond pure exoticism.

The majority of the exhibition is arranged geographically and a number of photographs are made by unknown photographers (comprised of professional photographers, ethnographers and amateurs). It will also feature many types of early photographic processes and techniques, which serves to underscore the evolving nature of what the medium was able to capture and present.

Known photographers in the exhibition include:

GEORGE BARKER; D.F. BARRY; W.P. BLISS; L.T. BURWASH; CASE & DRAPER; DRANE; E.W. HALL; HAMILTON & HOYT; RICHARD HARRINGTON; WILLIAM E. IRWIN; H.G. KAISER; W.H. MARTIN; HANNAH H. MAYNARD; LEE WILLIAM MOHR; WILLIAM M. NOTMAN; S.W. ORMSBY; WILLIAM M. PENNINGTON; HARRY POLLARD; and ISAIAH WEST TABER.
