The process of making art is a continuous learning experience.
As a printmaker, photographer, and painter, I am always
fascinated by combining mediums and techniques—perhaps, it is
an attempt to celebrate, transcend, or reverse the conventions
of visual languages.
In today’s world, we artists want to
embrace new technologies, while still holding onto and
combining them with more traditional methods of making art.
New techniques keep on evolving. In the past, I used to print
on film and make multiple exposures in a darkroom by
sandwiching negatives in slide holders and I used liquid photo
emulsions and chemistry on huge canvases and papers.
I also printed collotypes with gelatin and cyanotypes with the sun and
used tea and coffee—as well as many other more toxic
chemicals—for toning. I was driven to learn all the languages of
light and darkness.
