About

Abstract landscape sepia tone photograph of clouds Japanese Kozo paper infused with encaustic on 4 panels, each panel is 36 inches x 11 inches edition of 12 36 x 45.5 inches unframed, made to order Jeri Eisenberg's photographs, which capture nature's beautiful moments, are printed on panels of thin Japanese Kozo paper. The paper's translucent quality compliments the image with delicate sophistication. A thin layer of encaustic is applied on top of the photograph panels, creating a matte, smooth surface. Here, four black and white panels combine to depict a sky-scape that could easily be mistaken for an abstract water color due to the style of this negative photograph. Artist statement: “In looking at my photographs of clouds, people seem freer to think about the relationships in the pictures than about the subject-matter for its own sake.” – Alfred Stieglitz The skies present an endless and ever-new canvas on which to project ourselves and our emotions. I am interested in the expressive nature of photography: my job, as I see it, is to present a piece of the world, and by conveying how I see it, to tell you something more, something about my internal state of being. But always the drive is to say, ‘stop for a moment, consider this, feel its wonder, its awe’. With full acknowledgment to Stieglitz and his Equivalents (Songs of the Sky was his original title for that historic work), this series furthers my own inquiry into the possibility of abstracted images being able to convey inarticulable emotions, and attempts to capture the ephemeral nature of beauty. These images are first printed with water-soluble, dye-based inks. This lets me brush or spray the printed images with water to make the dyes run in selected areas. It gives the imagery a very unusual quality as the dyes puddle and pool, and hues that lie just below the surface are brought forward to alter the photographic nature of the initial imagery. Those altered prints are then About Jeri Eisenberg: Jeri Eisenberg works primarily with non-traditional and alternative photo-based techniques. She represses or subverts traditional photography's emphasis on the representational qualities of the medium, and emphasizes instead the medium's expressive nature. She employs a strong sense of materiality and seductive surfaces in her work, to evoke sense memories and visceral connections. Her work steadfastly serves as an affirmation of beauty in the everyday natural world, but is tinged with the bittersweet - a reminder of the temporal condition, and an elegy for life.
