Saman Genshin, Compositions

Exhibition Dates: November 12 – December 5, 2021

These works are from my investigations of writing systems and their graphic essentials: rhythm, repetition, and intensity. As I created these, I heard the patterns and textures of music.

The work wove back and forth in front of me, from notation to graphics, and from work that could be read to work that could be seen, weaving back and forth across a dividing line which itself seemed to be very arbitrary.

These are unique works.  The underlying image is of snow on temple steps in Hokkaido, Japan, followed by a process of painting with photographic chemicals. All are gold toned gelatin silver prints made by traditional photochemical processes, from in-camera negatives and traditional photo sensitive paper and chemicals.
