About

By toning cyanotypes, using chemicals that turn the deep blue images to yellow, Craig's photographs fade and begin to disappear. Craig is curious about what happens when she stops the process at various stages, and when she lets the images ‘evaporate’ completely. Nothing lasts forever. The Wollemi Pine, thought to be extinct, was known only from 200-million-year-old fossils until 1994, when the 100 ft trees were discovered living happily in the impenetrable forests of New South Wales. The personification of longevity and adaptability, this beautiful tree is critically endangered. White mat, framed behind glass in white wood frame, 14 x 17 inches Marie Craig’s photography considers objects that were once imbued with life but have since been abandoned. Juncture, Craig’s latest series, alludes to a turning point, the moment where a choice made profoundly alters the trajectory of what follows, whether evident at the time or not. She uses cyanotype, because in this early photographic process choice and chance factor equally into the outcome of each piece. Craig’s layered photographs expand on the concept of the overlap between concrete bodies, or still moments, and the life instilled in them. Though time forges ahead, it does not necessarily wear out life. Her photographs capture places of formative choice, incorporating both crystallization —intention and opportunity —and chance, the unpredictable life to follow.
