Untitled (California Native Plants), 2014

Christine Nguyen

Stalks of California native plants dance through a deep blue cosmos in this fascinating work, which combines digital photography with a 19th century blueprinting process called cyanotype. This image shows the delicate shadow-prints of buckwheat stalks superimposed over a backdrop that recalls the starry cosmos. This technique allows the artist to explore the parallels between micro and macro worlds, imagining a prism where we can look back and forth between them.
