Artists Grace Richardson and Tomasz A Kowalski come together in the darkroom at San Mei Gallery to produce a reel of film. Neither have made a film before. Grace and Tomasz are making a reel of film. Camera-less, black and white, unrefined dark-room techniques. “Painterly” textures. The hyper contrast between the analogue and digital that is apparent in both artist’s individual practices.


They want to use this research project to formalise the habits running in the background of both of their practices. These habits involve a more material based approach to production. The artists are not concerned with producing a self contained work of art that poses a question, interrogates it and answers it all in one go.


Tomasz A Kowalski specialises in digital texturing techniques and Grace Richardson likes being in the darkroom.

The artists will be giving a talk about their research further down the line. Please subscribe to our mailing list to keep in the loop.
