Art: Ghostly images appear in the darkroom

We look at our very first experimental images using old fashioned photographic processes.

In the 1920s artist Man Ray experimented with a photographic technique called ‘photograms’. Essentially the process involves placing objects on top of a piece of light sensitive photographic paper and exposing it to light from an enlarger. The results are often abstract, but can also be quite mysterious. We took a small group of Year 11 photographers (Kiara, Anmol, Tialf and Amy) into the new photography darkroom to experiment with this process, with some strangely beautiful and ghostly results. We are proud to present the very first St Andrews Art Department handmade, non-digital photograms.

Artist of the Week

Ing created this cosmic art piece using the digital illustration app Procreate. Her composition of a surrealist hand features a number of techniques used by surrealist artists such as levitation, scale and dislocation. Ing's thoughtful composition depicts a playful contrast between dark & light and negative & positive space. The infinite space punctuated by the tactile suggestion makes us wonder whether the touch of the finger brings us to the beginning or the end of the world!
