Images by Cid Roberts
Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to present Ecotone, an exhibition of new cyanotypes by Meghann Riepenhoff. The exhibition will open on Thursday, May 2 and will be on view through Saturday, June 22, with an opening reception for the artist on Thursday, May 2 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. This is the artist’s second exhibition at the Gallery.
Following on Riepenhoff’s 2017 exhibition, Littoral Drift – prints made from direct exposure to ocean waves –Ecotone expands her work with the 19th century cyanotype process, both in scale and in the varied forms of water in which the photographs are created.
Ecotone engages dynamic photographic materials in the landscape, collaborating with precipitation and bodies of water to produce rich, blue-hued prints. For the most recent works, rain, snow, ice activate the photographic materials while they expose in day light. The photo-chemically treated papers are draped on objects in the landscape, from windfall branches, stumps and boulders to garbage cans and fences, recording the movement of water as it passes through the topographies of the built and unbuilt landscape.
