Featured Artist
Thomas Condon

At GALLERY 1/1 we love to see the “hand of the artist” expressed in the prints we exhibit and Tom Condon exemplifies that amalgam of painting and photography with his unique silver gelatin chemigrams. This experimental process utilizes a painterly application of photochemistry to light sensitive paper creating new imagery that Tom describes as an “imagining of the simultaneous impossibility of the abstract and the familiarity of the real.”  We are presenting Tom’s Seattle debut exhibition with a selection of exciting new work in his Homomorphism series made during his current tenure as a Staff Artist for the Vermont Studio Center.

Thomas Condon & Juan Manuel Fernandez
March 15 - May 12, 2018

GALLERY 1/1 is excited to present the Seattle debut of artists Thomas Condon and Juan Manuel Fernandez who each have a unique approach to creating hand-made photographic prints. Their choice of an alternative process is an important extension of how they express their artistic vision. Tom was a successful young painter until a life-changing accident shattered both of his arms leaving him unable to paint the same without pain. He turned to photography as his new medium and has refound his artistic voice with the painterly chemigram method of making prints. Juan puts a contemporary twist on the historic wet plate collodion process to create photogram tintypes of geometric designs that defy the first impression of just simple shapes to reveal a much more complex and multifaceted construction the deeper you look. This reflects some of Juan's experience growing up as a Latino in the American Midwest. 

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, March 15th from 6-9 p.m. during Ballard Night Out Art Walk
