    Shana Nys Dambrot A charming alchemy of materials and effects, so tethered to physical components but so ethereal and balanced in effect.

Each Colour Study originates with photographs of papers and films, layered three to five deep on a stack of glass shelves. With the camera positioned directly above, each layer is photographed in focus as the others fall outside of the field of focus. The images are layered and blended to create abstractions that reference contemporary art, including pointillism, colour fields, opaque and transparent layers, collage, and textures. The experimental technique remains true to the original photographs as nothing is added or subtracted in the process.
