This Friday's Gallery Stroll...March 19th 6-9 pm

by Elise LaJeunesse
Elise LaJeunesse was trained in the rare art of bromoil by one of the great living masters of the art, David W. Lewis, and what started out as a hobby, rapidly turned into a passion. Elise LaJeunesse is an accomplished and prize winning photographer. She soon started taking on more complicated and unique projects, such as taking photographs of objects long past their prime and creating the time intensive bromoils from them.
The art of bromoil is a labor intensive process, which began in the late 1890’s and is currently practiced by a small number of artists worldwide. It is a unique art form and begins with a carefully chosen black and white photograph. The photograph is printed on a specialty paper and the silver is removed through a bleaching and tanning chemical process. Permanent lithograph ink (a hard printer’s type ink) is then added back to the bleached image with a variety of brushes and the ink is stippled into the print. This results in a beautiful painterly quality and rich textures, thus creating a one of a kind art image.
The art can be seen at Charley Hafen Jewelers • Gallery from 3/17/10 through 4/13/10.Artist Reception to be held in conjunction with the Salt Lake City Gallery Stroll, on Friday, March 19th, from 6–9 PM.
