Meghann Riepenhoff: Littoral Drift

Artist Talk

Meghann Riepenhoff in conversation with Emily Lambert, Associate Director, Fraenkel Gallery

In this new and intertwined bodies of work on view, Riepenhoff continues to explore themes of landscape, time, and impermanence and subjects of rain, ocean, and shoreline. She directly employs the effects of waves, rain, wind, and sediment to leave physical inscriptions through direct contact with photographic material. She uses the cyanotype -- one of the oldest photographic processes -- in an unprecedented way, partially photo-chemically processing each work so that they remain dynamic and change in response to their environments over time. In its totality, Riepenhoff's work provides a meditation on the amplitude and immensity of the oceans and the tactile reality of our relationship to the water and the natural environment.
