Of Metal & Light features three artists—Lisa Elmaleh, Sage Lewis, and Lucretia Moroni—who explore the elementary nature of photography, in both form and concept, demonstrating the significance of material and process in image creation and exemplifying the forward momentum of contemporary, chemistry-based practices.
Lisa Elmaleh, an alternative photographic artist from West Virginia, will be exhibiting silver prints made from glass plate negatives taken in the Everglades; Sage Lewis, a Vermont-based photographer, uses experimental techniques in carbon, silver, tintype, and cyanotype to explore the architecture of surface and space; and Lucretia Moroni, based out of New York and Italy, creates unique hand-made platinum/palladium prints on gold leaf.
