Douglas Udell Gallery presents the work of Adam Fuss during Vancouver’s Capture Photography Festival in October.
New York–based Adam Fuss departs from traditional camerawork in his photomechanical rendering of photograms. Using no lens, Fuss’s images are created by placing objects on large sheets of cibachrome paper that are briefly exposed to light. What results are colourful abstractions, elusive silhouettes of floating babies, and hypnotic rays of vibrating hues. Rife with symbolism and references to mythology and mortality, Fuss’s images starkly confront viewers with the unknown, the sublime, and the uncanny.
