Phlat Stuff presents cyanotypes by Robin Hill and pounced pigment drawings by Mary Judge. In addition both artists will produce site specific installations. Robin Hill will construct a cyanotype that adheres directly on two adjacent walls and runs from floor to ceiling. In Hill's piece the image is made by exposing a utilitarian object, a translucent shopping bag, to varying exposures of light directly on paper. Mary Judge will make a monochromatic, twenty-one foot wall painting. Judge's wall painting will explore transformation through repetition of motif and the use of a symmetrical structural system. In both Robin Hill's and Mary Judge's work the image develops out the process and their work shares a visceral and immediate quality. Hill states that her "pieces rest in a state of suspended animation, speaking of possibility and potential rather than articulating a finite resolution." And Judge in discussing beauty relates, "for me beauty resides not only in the harmony of proportions but also in the elemental, primal forms that connect the work of art with both the intellect and senses on a profound level."
