Sun, Smoke, Sky, and Grass

Alt Process Landscapes of SW Saskatchewan

May 8 – 26, 2024
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 11, 2 – 5:30 pm
Artist’s Talk: Sunday, May 26, 2 – 3 pm

The sky is large, smoke obscures the sun, grasses rustle in unrelenting winds. Hand-brushed photographic prints of southwest Saskatchewan are presented using a novel experimental approach combining plant proteins, iron salts, and pigments. The raw aesthetic, reminiscent of the gum bichromate process, reflects the starkness of these prairie lands.

Peter Friedrichsen is a photographer and alternative process printmaker based in Toronto, Canada. He has had two cyanotype photogram solo exhibitions and has been a featured artist in several books on the process. He often uses a minimalist approach to his photography and printmaking. An endless experimenter, he enjoys pushing the boundaries and developing a deeper understanding of alternative processes. He has exhibited both locally and internationally.
