It has always been my desire to expose viewers to the unseen elements and small details that may surround them from the natural world while creating these unique one-of-a-kind prints. Also taking it a step further and combining layers and exposures that create illusions, I find that intense color and translucence captivates. Color is one of the tools that I utilize to achieve those feelings of awe. For about 30 years I have been working with Cibachrome, which became Ilfochrome. The archival color darkroom material is a positive receiver and my process is a projection of light passing through my compositions. This exposure onto this light sensitive material, when processed, gives me the luminous color I am looking for to achieve meditative pieces, that envelope and engage. In 2012, the last run of Ilfochrome, a Swiss product was manufactured. Although my paper supply is now expired, I am still printing at this time with a diminishing inventory of unexposed paper. Since the process is experimental it is a bit like catching a snowflake on your tongue, sometimes its frustrating but when successful the elusive reward is a pleasure for the senses!
