Telescoping Landscapes

Sugar Cane Twister RTP2

The art of the landscape capture has many layered meanings – realized or hidden, from the photographic eye.  It is not until one looks deeper that the workings within the images are revealed. Visual fragments offer traces and remnants of history that are both environmental and man-made.

In this series of photogravures, Telescoping Landscapes, I explore what we see on the surface, and through the artworks, tell a story held within.

Collaborated with Master Printer, Tracy Mayrello of Creekside Studio, Sugar Cane Twister offers 12 photogravures with blue Kozo chine collè a la poupèe and 12 silver Kozo prints with Payne’s Grey ink. A pre-publication price of $600 will be offered for the first 4 prints sold and will be $700 after pre-publication. Sign up for my news to see the upcoming print variations of Sugar Cane Twister, along with the story behind this image. The printed image is 14.5″h x 11″w and offered on 26″h x 21″w Rives BFK paper.

Fishing for Iconography Wheat Pasting in Johnson City

A Time to Remember © 2011 Tina Weitz Photography

I am excited to be chosen as part of the wheat pasting project, Fishing for Iconography in Johnson City with ASmith Gallery.  The image chosen is dear to me, as it is one of WWII veterans gathering at the Camp Mabry Texas Military Forces Museum to celebrate a Sweetheart Dance in honor of their service.  Vintage clothing, authentic service uniforms, honoring servicemen and the best live big band in Texas, The Sentimental Journey Orchestra, sweeps everyone back in time.

“Flawed” Exhibit and a Hand-Manipulated time-zero Polaroid Film Image

flawed: an instant film exhibition featuring juror, Michael Kirchoff, will be on view at ASmith Gallery January 15 through March 6, 2016.  I am grateful and excited to be included in this instant (magic) imagery.

receptions | January 30 & February 27, 2016 4 to 7pm
103 N Nugent Ave, Johnson City, TX 78636

about the image:
From the days of fresh Polaroid time-zero film and the hand-manipulation of the chemicals within.  I often did this within 24 hours of a shoot, by heating the surface of the print with a hair dryer to increase the pressure sensitivity of the magic happening directly beneath the thin top surface.  My tool of choice, a barbecue skewer – scraping and shaping the facets of the image to my pleasing.

Beauty Rituals is a comment on the daily peacock rituals expected of beauty and today’s “modern” woman.  These items were pulled from my own makeup drawers in the powder room from my (then) daily quest of this concept.

 

Homecoming exhibit at Flatbed Press and Gallery

I am part of the current Homecoming exhibit at Flatbed Press and Gallery which was recently mentioned in Glasstire’s TOP FIVE exhibitions and art events across the state of Texas.  Flatbed has worked with many artists in many disciplines to create some of the finest printmaking in the nation.  I am honored to be included.  I have on display an image captured in Johnson City, Texas with instax film titled “Bandito Roy”. On exhibit through December 14.

Tina Weitz Images to be Featured in West Austin Studio Tour 2015

I have been asked to exhibit my Pola-Vision Series on the second floor of the Faulk Central Library during this year’s West Austin Studio Tour in May 2015.  Ten large format Polaroid Time Zero print images shot with vintage SX70 cameras will be on display for the tour, and continue to be on exhibit through June.

A bit of history on the library: The Austin Public Library opened in 1926. The present Central Library building was constructed in 1979. In 1995 the Central Library was renamed John Henry Faulk Central Library in honor of local writer and free speech hero John Henry Faulk. As the main library, Faulk Central serves as the reference and collection backbone for the entire Austin Public Library system.

Thank you City of Austin and the Library for this opportunity.

Texas Military Forces Museum Sweetheart Dance

I again had the honor and privilege of photographing the Camp Mabry Texas Military Forces Museum’s Sweetheart Dance and Fundraiser this year in Austin, Texas.  What a wonderful way to honor the veterans and have a vintage night of fun also.  The music was second to none with the 20 piece Sentimental Journey Orchestra transporting you back in time to World War II.  I will be posting the photos taken by February 28, for those anticipating the images and who wish to purchase a print – with proceeds benefiting the museum.  There will also be photos posted from previous years, in case you missed them.  More details soon.
