Rachelle Bussières continues her darkroom exploration and experimentation by cutting, layering and manipulating photographic materials. Influenced by geological strata and astral movements and their transformative properties, her work eschews conventional darkroom techniques. Much like her predecessors and influences such as Dan Flavin and the Light and Space Movement, Bussières has been inspired by the naturally occurring colors in the Western sky. Her recent work has developed a “sky pallet” by using the lumen print process through layers of natural and artificial light to create hues and gradations of color as photograms on gelatin silver paper. The resulting works resemble landscape features such as moons, ice formations and mountains, yet dually retain a distant and dreamlike quality.
