Today’s selected Crossing Territories artist is Laura Wulf. She has created stunning photograms that have to be seen in person to be realized as masterpieces. Looking at them as a jpg intrigues me, but seeing them in person wows me. They are beautiful, clever, creative. Using chromogenic paper exposing bold color, then following up by scratching patterns into the print creates designs that magnify the simplicity, yet intricate attention to detail.
In Laura’s words –
Blending the primitive act of scratching with the modern technology of color photography and collaborating with chance, has allowed my curiosity to be open to, and moved by, the unknown and the previously unseen. The work explores mark-making, as well as the material’s potential for color, and each piece is unique. The resulting pieces refer to painting and drawing, and are part of an ontological dialogue across media.
