Toronto-based artist Andréanne Michon has developed a photographic practice that incorporates a series of exchanges between traditional mediums, incorporating straight photography, printmaking, video, sound, sculpture, and pyrogravure. Michon’s processes, which depend on chemical reactions, pressure, heat, darkness, and light, parallel the processes that drive environmental change. These photographic processes, which transmute materials into new substances, seek to interpret geological formations and investigate the earth’s evolution. Film is transformed by heat into undulating sculptures, and carved outlines on linoleum blocks are transformed into lustrous silver gelatin prints. The resulting abstracted images and manipulated objects are photographic meditations on tectonic, volcanic, and cataclysmic forces.
