Jan 23 | Artist Lecture: Salt / Water

Saturday, Jan 23rd | 6:30pm

Please join us for a conversation with Salt/Water exhibition artists Daniel Hawkins, Kimberly Anderson, and Meghann Rieppenhoff, moderated by Tim Greyhavens.

Meghann Riepenhoff’s large-scale cyanotypes, while vastly different in visual result, are cameraless, utilizing properties of photographic chemistry to arrest the action of waves, rain, wind, and time. Kimberly Anderson’s salted paper prints—a process that partially heralded the birth of photography and launched the positive / negative process—reveal the beauty and complexity of Utah’s Great Salt Lake. Anderson’s gaze encompasses the natural environment along with humanity’s markers and interventions. Daniel Hawkins’s color photographs also often reflect this duality. Hawkins develops his 8×10 film at the site of the industrial landscapes he has photographed, utilizing water from his locations and encouraging the visual fluctuations that result from the temperature and conditions present in the landscape at the moment he has made an exposure. Like Matthew Brandt, Ian Ruhter, and other contemporary practitioners in the west, Hawkins considers the performative act of making his photographs an essential element of the resultant print.
