Actually there were at least two gum prints that I noticed at AIPAD, but
I'm embarrassed to say that I can't remember which artist or whose booth.
(I love AIPAD but after a few hours, fatigue and overstimulation seem
to cause my brain to stop working...). Anyway, these gums were huge
(as big as some of those you know what -- big color yadda yadda yadda)
and pretty monochromatic. Lovely, really.
A few other observations from the show: some of the tintypes I
saw (including the Jeffrey Becom ones) were on copper, which is so much
more appealing than those crummy aluminum (I think) plates I used to use.
Does anyone know a good source for copper plates and is it a huge nuisance to
Among the color work, Mona Kuhn was everywhere and I can't figure out her
appeal. But Jen Davis's pictures continue to grab me.
And I loved the little Patti Smith silver prints.
