Water is an essential component in the making of the photographs in this exhibition. Alchemic in presence, it is an active ingredient with transformative properties directly linked to image formation. As image is commonly given preeminence in photography, this pivotal role can easily be overlooked. Fluid Method brings together three artists who use and control water to varying degrees across different photographic processes: gelatin silver, cyanotype, and inkjet printing. Together these works yield an array of liquid aesthetics from subtle to apparent, abstract to representational, and material to concept.
