"Conceptual abstraction par excellence" -The New York Times
Divided into sections that represent the breadth of Alison Rossiterís (born 1953) process and vision, Expired Paper offers a comprehensive look at the artistís body of cameraless photo-art-Latent, Landscapes, Pools, Pours, Dips, Blurs, Fours and Collages.
Art critic Leah Ollman has been contemplating Rossiterís work for years, and her accompanying text serves as an ideal complement to the images: ďAll of the works pay homage to the rich idiosyncrasies of photographic papers across history, and restore a sanctity to the photograph as object. Made without cameras, lenses or film, the works are nothing but process and materiality.Ē
The book also includes a selection of early 20th-century photographic paper packages (which the artist has collected for over 10 years) in a separate booklet.
