Opposing the 20th century idea of black and white photography, Nancy Richardson (American) is a New York-based artist, who uses highly advanced printing technology within her own studio to generate large-scale, multi-panel images of complex color. Selecting the most sophisticated equipment to produce her format prints, Richardson’s images are both archival and impressive. Experimenting with her treatment of content, Richardson’s portfolio is primarily composed of two separate bodies of work, with the first group consisting of images of floral compositions. Normally dismissed for their more delicate associations, the scale and hyper clarity with which Richardson produces her hyperbolic prints give the flowers a 3-dimensional, textured and sculptural appearance. Bringing the subtle nuances of each petal to the foreground, Richardson’s artwork enriches one’s perspective of commonly found botanical arrangements. Consistent with her flower studies, Richardson’s cityscapes, whether viewed in close proximity or from a distance, possess an almost encyclopedic degree of detail. For this body of work, Richardson reshoots the same image of various locations in lower Manhattan, on multiple occasions, with the intention of capturing the authentic quality of that particular civic space. In layering this photomontage, she compresses light and time into a single image.
