Joanne Dugan

The United States, Los Angeles Kopeikin Gallery

Joanne Dugan (US, 1961) is a visual artist who lives and works in New York City. Her most recent works use analog photographic materials and processes to evoke visual renderings of time, space and various states of human consciousness. Currently informed by the slowness and limitations of traditional light-based photo materials, she creates small and unique-image limited editions of handmade works that utilise hand-cutting techniques, chemical alterations, vintage materials and repetition. The darkroom is a key component in the process, as she explores and pays homage to the physical limitations and opportunities found in analog methods, while also seeking to reinterpret their potential for mindfulness-based creation in a digital age.
