1/5-2/24/17, Ben Nixon, Oriental Seagull: Photogramic Paintings

Reception Friday 2/2/17 6-8 PM

Many years ago, while living in California, I was gifted six unopened boxes of Oriental Seagull photographic paper from the 80ʼs. The boxes remained unopened until 2015, when I began making this series of photograms. I started to apply various chemicals directly to the photographic paper and exposing with all types of light sources. As the process progressed, I started to feel like I was making paintings, so I coined the phrase, Photogramic Paintings. The images remind me of aerial and scientific photography, both micro and macro, but also of the monochrome Chinese landscape paintings. I pic- ture a giant black and white bird flying through the cosmos surveying the land below.

The work pays homage to one of the earliest methods of making a photograph, gives a nod to surrealism, and celebrates the extraordinary beauty of the silver gelatin process.
