2,000.00

In this hand-printed series of gelatin silver photographs, Jonathan VanDyke presents four images in the medium of early performance art documentation. In these works, VanDyke takes up the aesthetic of 1970s photography to create playfully sensual images. Blocking faces, employing magazine cut-out eyes, lightly drawing arcs in water: the works thematize vision and touch, and the intimacy of those sensory experiences.

Edition of 3, gelatin silver print in artist's frame
