SAM FALLS

Artist who sort of uses photograms- fabric is laid out covered with natural material and then sprinkled with pigment and left out in the weather.

I think his pigment could be as simple as fabric dye. If the fabric was primed with soda ash first this would work.

I think I’m more looking at developing photograms with cyanotype or solar fast but I do love the serendipity of these sort of works that harness the weather and time.

Melissa Zexter

Thinking of the photography unit coming up and I saw this. Melissa Zexter embroiders on photographs. Looks like most of the photos are black and white and then the colour is added through embroidery.

I’m thinking of photograms or pinhole photographs transferred to fabric and then potential addition of colour with ink or embroidery.
