Artist Statement

Andrew Sovjani (b.1967) is a visual artist recognized for blurring the boundaries between photography, printmaking and painting. Raised in a family of working studio artists, art making is in his blood. Andrew has drawn from his life experiences in the scientific world and living in Asia to create transcendent bodies of work that are often extremely peaceful. His award winning photographs have been shown in exhibitions throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan and are held in many public and private collections. He has won over 20 awards of distinction at many of the top fine arts festivals in the nation and was a finalist for the Critical Mass book awards in 2010.

Information on Sovjani’s Series:

From the “Folding Light” series:
These images are about the study of light and it’s nuances. I have chosen ordinary paper as a blank canvas in order to explore the interactions of light, shadow, line and space. Illuminated by the natural light filtering through a north window, simple paper can be transformed into the curves of a figure, the movement of a wave or the buildings of a city block.

From the “Blue Highways” series:
The images in this series are gathered from my last few years crisscrossing the US. On my way to various shows around the country I try to get off the interstates and wander without the guidance of GPS. I often find myself traveling along the old rural routes, marked blue on the Rand McNally atlases of the past. These images capture my quiet encounters with places and structures. In many ways they are made like portraits. I am attempting to capture their essence, something that is hard to put into words.

reAction printing technique:
The process I use to create each print is a combination of traditional, alternative, and digital methods. Each image is captured on large format B&W film then silver-gelatin prints are made in the darkroom. Over several days the B&W print is altered by hand using bleaches, acids, toners, and various homemade concoctions. This reworking changes the silver in the paper and creates beautiful colorations, mark making, and spontaneous effects. It also allows me to post-visualize and alter the straight image to reflect how I feel about the subject. These unique prints are then brought into the computer and further altered until the final visual image is realized and printed using archival pigment inks on 100% rag Baryta coated paper.
