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 Fernadez
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. Tom combines his training as a painter with an experimental “chemigram” technique, which utilizes hand-applied photochemistry to light-sensitive silver-gelatin paper create new - rather than reveal existing - images. Juan puts a contemporary twist on the historic wet plate collodion process to create photogram tintypes of complex geometric designs that are cameraless images made using darkroom techniques to produce the illusion of depth and dimension. These creations were inspired by trying to see the world through his kid's inquisitive eyes.

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