Artist's Description

Palladium with blue gum over. Printed on Fabriano Artistico. Palladium printing is an alternative process that was used after WWI. It is based on the platinum printing process and became popular due to the cost of platinum. Often use with varying amounts of platinum to make the prints more affordable.

Artist Statement:
Dreams catch us in sleep and sometimes when we are awake. They enrich, mystify, and enlarge our perspective. Sometimes we even capture their essence in our work. These images bring the feeling of confinement and release through blue blurs at an abandoned prison in Santa Fe, NM.

Artist Bio:
Rene Hales started photographing using 35mm film in 1990. She has progressed to work incorporating digital elements, but has returned in part to the darkroom to add handson elements to her images. Rene feels that part of the joy of creating the images is getting your hands in the process. Recent work has appeared in a two-person show “Botanicals” at the M. S. Rezny Gallery in Lexington (2009). She also sponsored an Alternative Processes Photography Exhibition at the Berea Arts Council in 2009.
