Nature's Blueprints
Tuesday, 13 May 2014
By Mike English
ImageOne of the advantages of living in New Mexico is having internationally recognized artists living right in the neighborhood. Such is the case with Nob Hill resident Marietta Patricia Leis, who has exhibited her work from New Mexico to New York to Finland.
 
Leis worked closely with the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science on this exhibit, creating blue-toned “cyanotypes” of items from the museum’s specimen collection.
 
A cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. It’s the same process used by engineers and architects for much of the 20th century to produce drawing copies, or “blueprints.”
 
Here Leis turns the process toward items from nature, such as bones and plants. “My assistants and I had to turn my entire studio into a large darkroom with very large rinsing pans — it felt like a laboratory and we were the mad scientists,” Leis said in her narrative for the show. The resulting images are striking — almost haunting at times — and well worth a trip to the museum.
