2018 Finalists

Danica CHAPPELL

Artist statement: With a self-assertive lithe approach to photography, Thickness of time pursues my focus on the cameraless echo from within the expressive darkroom.

As if it were a slide-rule, the point of contact between photography’s processual improvements and cameraless methods, frees me to sift through the paths of this language. Through masking and layering, Thickness of time declares the complexity I place on my darkroom activities, working within physical means to evolve a dialect with photography.

Diplomacy inside the darkroom observes the photograph’s ability to blend present and past in abstracted appearance. These exploits draw attention to the tangible capacity of time, objects and light.
