Vineland High School, 1985, Photography
Jon Lybrook makes visual art by combining traditional and experimental processes in photography, printmaking and painting in order to explore the boundaries of a given medium. His work is done by painting on light-sensitive film with photochemistry and resists. It is, in a sense, cameraless photography and can be defined by the terms 'chemigram' and 'luminogram'. See http://intaglioeditions.com/procedu... for more technical information about Jon Lybrook's printmaking procedures.
"I did alot of small films and post production experiments on 16mm film during college." Jon Lybrook. said. "Most of them provided a host of challenges for me on a technical level and for my audience on another level. Most people didn't care or get what I was doing, and still don't. The reason I make art is to participate in and observe the act of making something unusual, yet something out of nature. Much of my work looks like natural processes found in nature, both on the micro and macro level. Distinguishing whether what you're looking at might be seen through a microscope or telescope is left to the imagination."
"Once completed, it's all about production, framing and presentation, which is not so interesting to me, but necessary. I spend alot of time making the presentations as significant as the pieces themselves."
