Charlene MartinPhotography Transfer Process
Charlene Martine started studying fine art photography in 2010. Environmental portraiture is a reoccurring theme. Forgotten or overlooked places and objects are also common subjects in her work. Searching for a more handson approach to photography, she started experimenting with alternative methods. Cameraless processes as well as manipulating the digitally created image into a handmade object are some of the new directions she has been exploring.
Ms. Martin will be demonstrating a few of the transfer processes she has been using. Both ink Jet Transparency Film and Toner/Laser Photocopies can be transferred to a number of surfaces using common products found at grocery, hardware and art supply stores. These techniques can be used to transform your photograph into a unique art work or a component for Mixed Media art work.
Ms. Martin is a member of the Stockton Art League, Lodi Community Art Center, Stockton Camera Club and the Central Valley Clickers.
