Following the great success of our first workshop we are very happy to follow up As part of the expanded Lucy Art Residency events program a 2-day CYANOTYPE workshop in the Greek city of Kavala with artist Almudena Romero (SP).


Making image-objects with the cyanotype process
Taking inspiration from contemporary artists using the cyanotype process, join visual artist Almudena Romero for an introduction to the historical process of  cyanotype printing  and learn how to print images on wood, paper, fabric, stone and other materials to produce a variety of image-objects.  Suitable for all abilities, this two days workshop is designed so that you will be able to practice independently afterwards.

About the Artist

almudena romero.jpg

Almudena Romero is a London based visual artist working with a wide range of photographic processes from early printing techniques such as cyanotype, salt printing or wet plate collodion, to new technologies including 3D scanning and printing.  Almudena's practice uses photographic processes to reflect on issues relating to identity, representation and ideology; such as the role of photography in the construction of national identity, or the link between photographic archives and colonialism. Her work focuses on how photographic processes and technology transform the notions of public, private, individuality, identity, memory, and, in general, the concept of the individual.  Almudena's works touch on how perception affects existence and how photographic processes contribute to organising perception.

Since 2015,  Almudena has demonstrated and explained her practice at the Victoria and Albert Museum,National Portrait Gallery TATE Modern-TATE ExchangeTATE BritainThe Photographers’ Gallery, Tsinghua University Art Museum, the Whitechapel GalleryLe Cent-Quatre ParisUniversity of the Arts LondonUnseen Amsterdam,  and delivered courses and lectures for Mitsubishi Ichigokan MuseumEstorick CollectionMapfre FoundationSotheby's  Institute of ArtUniversity of Westminster,Kingston University and Southampton Solent University and London Art Fair. She has also received commissions to produce installations in public spaces from Team London Bridge, Southwark CouncilEmergency Exit ArtistWellcome Trust and University College London, Bow Arts Trust & London Festival of Architecture. Her work has been published in PhotomonitorRadio France InternationaleTimeOut, DUST magazine, EXTRA magazine (FOMU, Foto Museum) and other media.
