LYNDONVILLE: "Triple Vision" Chris Esten, Linda Bryan, and Thea Storz

Triple Vision: Seeds of Tradition in Contemporary Photography
Opening: Friday, November 2, 6 pm
Quimby Gallery at Lyndon State College
Exhibit runs November 5 through December 5, 2012

Luddites? Not! Three photographers from the Northeast Kingdom have mounted an exhibit that explores photographic expression using both antique and post-modern methods. Chris Esten, Linda Bryan, and Thea Storz are showing at the Quimby Gallery at Lyndon State College during the month of November, 2012. The three women have produced images that have common themes and concerns, yet are diverse in their approach.

by Chris Esten

Plants have been used as subject matter since photography's first beginnings. From a tradition that started with photograms and calotypes, Chris Esten explores the diversity and wonder of plant forms and image making with a scanner and ink jet pigment prints. Some of the results are reminiscent of early photo chemistry, while others play with color balance and tonal scale to create new twenty-first century effects.

by Linda Bryan

Linda Bryan investigates subtle relationships between humans and landscape. Linda’s quiet images are made using a variety of (mostly) antique film cameras.

Thea Storz uses the antique photographic process of cyanotype in order to print photographic images onto fabric. She creates quilts, bags, books, and potholders, Thea’s mixed media pieces explore fertility (animal, vegetable, and plastic) and popular culture.
