Rhonda and John Campbell: Out of the Blue
“Have you ever gone to a popular place and found that the crowds wouldn’t allow you to get the image that you want to capture? Well, that has always bothered me. So I developed some proprietary actions that allow me to improve the images rapidly and with consistent results. I minimize the crowd effects and maximize the object I want to preserve. I call this technique “Photo Sketch”. My cyanotypes on display have been derived from my “Photo Sketches”.
“What is art but the visual creation of what is in ones mind – imagination? Art comes from the heart, the technique is irrelevant. I use any tool available to create my art. In this exhibit you will see my passion for mixed media using photography negatives, photograms or artist hand tools to create alternative photography. Some of the prints have ink line drawings and paint. Printmaking to me is back to my roots, the traditional way; Etchings, Monotype and Alternative Photography (as Cyanotype).”
