About the Item

Marie Craig's "Sign City Galore" is an original deep blue photograph of an old buildings obscured by leaves. This piece was created using cyanotype, an early photographic process which uses sunlight to expose specially treated paper producing a striking indigo-toned image with high contrast and detail. The 11x 11 inch photograph is surrounded by a white matt and framed in a white wood frame; framed dimensions are 21 x 21 x 0.75 inches. This photograph is from the artist's 'Juncture' series, which explores the concept of the overlap between concrete bodies, or still moments, and the life instilled in them. The photo is signed on the back by the artist. Marie Craig is an award-winning Boston-based contemporary fine art photographer. Her work collectively glorifies objects that were once imbued with life but have since been abandoned. Craig is represented by Fountain Street Gallery in Boston, MA.

  • "Fern 2", contemporary, botanical, plants, yellow, cyanotype, photograph
    By Marie Craig
    Located in Natick, MA
    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. Ferns are some of the oldest plants on earth. Ferns embody resilience. Many forms have come and gone since they first appeared on the planet; 10,000 species exist today, in tropical, temperate and arctic regions. 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...

  • "Blue Gum 2", cyanotype, trees, blue, yellow, photograph
    By Marie Craig
    Located in Natick, MA
    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. Blue Gum trees, native to Australia, have survived for millennia by adapting and thriving in a climate where wildfires are common. Now invasive in many parts of the world, this 'gasoline tree' is a dangerous fire hazard, especially in the face of climate change, which is expected to make wildfires more common.

  • "Wolemi Pine 2", contemporary, yellow, trees, forests, cyanotype, photograph
    By Marie Craig
    Located in Natick, MA
    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.
