Von Lintel Gallery is pleased to announce our second exhibition with photographer Alex Hedison, “A Brief Infinity”.

Hedison is known for photography that brings attention to the ‘in between’ state. Previously, she focused on photographing exterior surfaces under construction that reflected the uncertainty of change. In 2020, with the isolation brought on by COVID-19, Hedison’s practice was interrupted. No longer able to travel to public spaces, she lost interest in picking up her camera which led her to improvise in the darkroom:

"I started experimenting with chemigrams; unlike traditional photography, chemigrams require nothing more than the interaction of chemicals and light on photographic paper. As I played with this process, I discovered that when black and white photo paper is given prolonged exposures to light, miraculous colors appear; bright hues alchemized, from pale pink to darker ruddy tones. Using clear packing tape, metallic paint, and varnish as forms of resistance, I began protecting the surface of the paper before submerging it into its chemical wash.

I chose to photograph the chemigrams one instant to the next, making records in an abstract and shifting landscape. My intention paralleled what I consistently aim to do with my work: to chronicle the fleeting process of development. Each moment I photographed is a record of a transformation underway, a split-second in a state of flux brought into view within a single frame.

I printed the image adding the silver metallic paint, initially meant to block the chemical process from occurring. I used this same reflective material and painted directly onto the final photographic prints. My work is drawn from the in between, the unfolding experience between the knowable and uncertain, it is as brief as it is infinite." – Artist Alex Hedison 

Alex Hedison has exhibited in galleries domestically and internationally, and her work is in public and private collections worldwide. The artist lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
