dnj Gallery Artist Laura Parker featured in exhibition at Rayko Photo Center

dnj Artist Laura Parker is currently featured in One of a Kind, at Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco.

The exhibition will be on view through September 1, 2013.

"RayKo’s summer show highlights photographers who are making one-of-a-kind prints. Everything from photograms to collage to cliché verre prints to manipulated Polaroids. While some of these processes harken back to the first days of photography, these aren’t like anything you’ve seen before."

Laura Parker’s discovery that exposed and developed sheets of color photography paper could be used to translate a series of physical marks led to her series of “Photo Rubbings.” Suddenly a piece of chromogenic paper, when pressure is applied, could become a labyrinth, a leaded window, a double-headed axe. Shapes and occasional colors advance and recede, sometimes just a hint of the object under the paper, sometimes the object multiplies into complex patterns.  An old printmaking process adapted to modern times.
