Sue Pedley, 2011
Sue Pedley is an artist of place. She forges links within and between places, to bring attention not only to the specific and perhaps overlooked qualities of the place we might be standing in, but also to the relationship … to other histories, cultures and power stakes.
Cyanotypeis a photographic printing process developed in the 19th century for copying architectural plans, astronomy maps and botanical specimens. The cyanotypes are made by exposing paper treated with light-sensitive emulsion, directly to sunlight or to ultra violet light.
The exhibited cyanotypes are photograms which record the shadows of everyday objects and materials as a means to experiment with time, light and space.
