About the show:
Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that dates back from 1842, and was instrumental for architects and engineers in producing blueprints. She creatively applies this process to make abstract photographs without the use or aid of a camera, and are easily identified by their distinct color that’s often described as “Prussian Blue”.
While these photographs seemingly convey concrete thoughts and concepts, Dar prefers to leave their interpretation and meaning to the viewer’s discretion. She accomplishes this by including works that have a degree of activity and/or require participation. Using different materials also allows the audience to engage with her work. At the end of the day, Dar aims to provide a medium or space that her audience can immerse themselves within her work, as opposed to being passive observers to it.
