Abigail Marquez submits Christina Z. Anderson

Christina Z. Anderson works with alternative processes as a form of art, including gum bichromate. While doing some research on the process for our own assignment, I had the opportunity to look through some of her work.

Her prints convey emotion and humor through composition, but more so, through her handling of the tricolor gum bichromate, sometimes starting with a layer of cyanotype for a full color print. The concept behind the images in the Gender Vanitas series is clearly represented with this process, allowing for humor, irony, and a sense of antiquity behind a stereotypical culture. This is a great example of what can be achieved with the split process in gum, rather than monochromatic prints.
