Harmony Hall will present the first solo exhibition in Jamaica of the artwork of H. Lisa Solon from April 3rd through 29th. The exhibit, “Out of the Blue”, showcases her cyanotypes of plants of Jamaica. Ms. Solon’s works were included in the 2006 and 2008 Jamaica National Biennials, and she won a 1999 New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowship, Her work is in major collections world-wide.
“Out of the Blue” is a series of unique prints, many on fabric, which range in size up to 60 inches square. Ms. Solon makes multiple exposures of individual plants in many of the works. The overlap and ultimately new image created by this, as well as direct layering, reveals a beauty that could never be realized by a single impression.
The process used to create these images is called Cyanotype and are characteristically a deep blue color. It is an alternative photographic process discovered in 1840’s. Cyanotype has been used by artists to print negatives and make photographs as well as by architects and builders to make blue prints. The images in this exhibition are single or multiple exposure photograms on fabric or paper. Each image is unique and cannot be duplicated.
A reception for the artist will be held on Sunday, April 3rd at 12:00 noon. Opening remarks will be given by the artist Laura Facey, winner of this year's Matalon award at the Jamaica National Biennial. Harmony Hall is located on the coast road 4 miles east of Ocho Rios. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday 10:00 am to 5:30 pm. Tel: 876-975-4222. Gallery website: harmonyhall.com Artist website: hlisasolon.com
