Early in the pandemic, Priya Kambli, Tarrah Krajnak, and Keliy Anderson-Staley all began independently making significant new bodies of work using the cyanotype process. The projects vary in approach, subject matter and form, but the themes they explore are complementary. Their projects reckon with archives, the past and questions of inheritance, identity, women's history and begin from direct contact with photographic materials and documents. Their work intersects around mark-making on flat, light sensitive papers with each maker choosing what is absent and what is present — what gets redacted and what is exposed multiple times. They use the movement of their bodies and of objects in both a literal and
conceptual layering in order to render narratives legible or permanently obscured. When they discovered via social media their parallel practices, they began meeting regularly via video to compare notes and give feedback about their work. In this panel they will discuss their intense individual studio practices and touch on the importance of working within a community of artists, especially in times of isolation.
