Liquids, and their infinite variety of forms, have been a central preoccupation for Fuss since his earliest works made in the 1980s. This exhibition, through an in-depth focus on this single element so essential to human life, explores the expressive potential of liquids in a variety of dynamic states. Made without a camera, Fuss’s photograms and daguerreotypes are distilled to the essential components of the photographic medium: light, subject matter, and photo-sensitive paper or metal.
From its beginnings, Fuss’s work has evoked the essential and spiritual elements of the natural world. Fuss magnifies the versatile and transitional nature of liquids when in motion, and when acted upon, in varied photographs of glycerin drops, waterfalls, and snakes rippling along the surface of still water.
