Alison Rossiter:  Paper Wait


Exhibition Dates:  February 26–April 4, 2015


Artist’s Reception:

Thursday, February 26

5:00–8:00 pm



Paper Wait, an exhibition of camera-less photographs by American artist Alison Rossiter, is the artist’s second show with the Gallery. Each of Rossiter's unique, hand-made photographs is a relic of photographic history and reveals the echoes of times passed. Rossiter activates unused, expired photographic paper by pouring or pooling liquid developer directly onto the surface, or dipping the sheets into developer. The embedded histories of these papers are then reawakened, revealing fingerprints, light leaks, oxidation or mold in the photographic emulsion. The artist’s experimental processes draw on the photograms of László Moholy-Nagy and the paintings of Morris Louis, and result in painterly or geometric abstractions that illuminate the unique characteristics of each sheet of paper. This exhibition will include Rossiter’s largest works to date, and feature papers from every decade between the late 1890s and the 1960s.  -Text adapted from Yossi Milo Gallery’s Press Release.
