Opening Thursday, November 3rd, Higher Pictures presents Cubes for Albers and LeWitt, Jessica Eaton’s first solo exhibition in New York City.


In her own words: The series Cubes for Albers and LeWitt explores the possibilities of manipulating time, space perception and, in particular, the additive system of color. The images are constructed on sheets of 4 x 5 film. The subject is in reality monochromatic. The photographs use a set of cubes and ground options painted white, two tones of grey, and black. Through multiple exposures, the color hues in each image have been made by exposing the film to additive primaries of red, green and blue. The reflective value of the cubes controls the value of lightness of that hue, and the black is utilized as a type of reflective mask, keeping potential on the film for other exposures. The images are completely photographic yet not visible to the naked eye.


We’re super happy to have helped Jessica by printing the eleven 16 x 20 and 32 x 40 archival pigment prints for this exhibition. We’ve been working together here and there since 2009 when we produced her contribution for the Humble Arts 31 Women in Art Photography exhibition and her winning entries in the 2009 Hey Hot Shot Second Edition Showcase.
