Allison Nichols, Eighteen Mile Creek – Portfolio Competition Winner

Exhibition Dates: May 8 – June 1, 2019

This body of work consists of cyanotype chemigrams that explores the space of a Superfund site located in Lockport, New York. The images are created solely through the interactions between photographic chemistry, contaminated water collected from Eighteen Mile Creek, and light. Ranging in tone from deep blue to harsh yellow, they make visual gestures towards landscapes and topography, but also towards toxicity and warning. Each print is a unique, one-of-a-kind object, in a state of change and decay.
