Black Box Projects present Joanne Dugan - Persistent Awakening

Black Box Projects is pleased to present Persistent Awakening, a solo exhibition by American visual artist, Joanne Dugan.

In her first solo exhibition in the United Kingdom, Dugan will present a series of unique cameraless photographic works that were inspired and created throughout her pandemic experience in New York City. Her newest works are a continuation of a practice deeply informed by meditative processes, this time also exploring the intersections between photography and painting. Pushing and pulling traditional analogue photo materials and processes, Dugan harnesses one of the oldest photographic techniques to record both traces of the hand and the interaction between light and material.

Within the works of Persistent Awakening, Dugan's cameraless photographic practice has evolved into a painterly process with the inclusion of cyanotype into her normally monochrome palette. The artist's exciting new body of work found in Persistent Awakening is delightfully unexpected, evocative and visually satisfying in its abstracted forms.
