This series continues to explore similar themes as those in the "Bathers", with references to the tradition of the nude. The figure is engaged in many of the same domestic rituals as those depicted in historical genre painting. However in this work the figure is thoroughly contemporary and participates as a collaborator rather than serving merely as a muse.
The prints in both the "Bathers" and "Bedroom" combine the vintage technique of Gum Bichromate--a 19th century printing process which consists of Gum Arabic, Ammonium Dichromate and water color pigments--with 21st century digital technology.
These 12x16 inch photographic studies of the human body are digitally printed from a scanned 4x5 black and white negative. The resulting images combine the contour elements of a line drawing with the subtle tonal quality of a photograph.
