“Photographic Paintings Using Light and Miscellaneous Liquids is a series combining timed exposures (5-20 min) in ambient light, with an extraneous liquid applied to the film plane before development. This liquid is completely unnecessary and superfluous to the process. However, the unnecessary liquid stimulates a chemical reaction that produces an almost painterly layer incorporated into the original, photographed image.”
