The Mark of Time / Albumen and Palladium Prints by Timothy H. McCoy
Arnold Art Gallery
Featuring work by: Timothy H. McCoy

Artist's Reception Oct 11 2- 4pm

This exhibition of contemporary photographs references the historical and the psychological past. The points of departure are the vintage processes of gold-toned albumen printing and of palladium printing on translucent vellum.

The albumen portfolio, Long, Long Journey to the Sea, traces the course of a particle of water from its birth, falling as rain in the mountains, gathering in pools and flowing through waterfalls, rivers, and swamps, eventually emptying into the sea. The Journey begins in the Great Smoky Mountains and continues through the Appalachian Mountains to the Okefenokee Swamp, ending in the sea off Jekyll Island, GA. This journey is a powerful metaphor for the course of human life. Between birth and death, the watercourse way and the human path interact with both natural and man-made phenomena which alter their trajectories.

The palladium portfolio, Sanctuary, focuses on cultural remnants left behind. The symbolic content of these images is meant to be archetypal-presenting some archaic concern embedded in the human psyche. "Sanctuary" is one such concern, and it embodying hope and refuge in response to fear and loss. As examples of "sanctuary," these images feature ruins, sites of religious pilgrimage, and the refuge to be found in nature.
