Borrowed Relics: The Last of the Large Polaroid Transfers
For many years Anna Tomczak has collected iconic treasures, some are derived from old manuscripts, and others are from searching through antique markets or collections. Each one of these figures holds a different meaning, symbolic reference or spiritual influence for both artist and the viewer alike.
The Polaroid large format (20 x 24) transfer process lends a tactile quality to the photo imagery, and a one of a kind work on paper. Through the transfer process, dyes from the negative are infused into Arches or Fabriano paper.
Anna Tomczak’s work has been featured in exhibitions and collections at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Florida Gulf Coast Museum of Art, Harn Museum of Art, McGraw-Hill, Museum of Florida Art, Norton Museum of Art, Polaroid Collections, Polk Museum of Art, Sony Latin-America and Tampa Museum of Art.
Additionally, the exhibition will open in the front gallery on October 11, and Anna Tomczak will teach a workshop at the gallery/studio November 7-9. Please contact the gallery for details.
