Analogue photography is a means of exploring our surroundings through the chemical replication and manipulation of imagery. Alchemy aimed to purify through chemical transformation in pursuit of a more perfect object. Photographer Jeff Klapperich has a history of ambitiously embracing the power of artistic media to manipulate and transform. With solo show “Metamorphosis: Transmutations,” Klapperich expresses the concept of transmutation in the human experience through multi-image vignettes, transforming the human figure into elemental abstractions of shape, color and texture, using photographic and ceramic materials with a focus on their inherent alchemical properties.
“Transmutations,” the “Metamorphosis” series's latest iteration includes the use of ceramic glaze, a medium which informed the inclusion of color into the final photograph and has turned Klapperich's attention toward the concept of alchemy.
