Online portfolios are essential

posted by Bridget on 03 July 2013

Going around the student degree shows I see work that piques my interest and I wonder what else the artist has produced, hoping that there is more to see on their website.

Sometimes there is nothing else presented which supports my initial interest and far too often there is no online presence at all. But just occasionally I am rewarded with the discovery of an exciting talent.

This is the case with Bindi Vora, whose exhibition at the University of Westminster's BA graduate show was a presentation of photographs of processed chromogenic colour paper. The prints show small indentations created from handling the paper drawing our attention to the photographic surface and suggesting a sculptural form, flattened out into the more conventional 2d aspects of photography

Lustreis about the materiality of photography but also questions ideas of how this mass produced material is merely a commodity until an image is recorded onto its surface and it is given some meaning.

This is Bindi's latest project, but on her website she has other work that supports her interest in the photographic process. In particular she has three series of seascapes, called White in the Seavolume I, II and III.

The work was shot in Margate, Cornwall and Aldeburgh. During each day's shoot the weather and cloud patterns changed and altered the intensity of the light on the sea. Back in her studio Bindi has isolated a single pixel from a negative, selecting the whitest pixel in the frame and printing the variations recorded on the film.

There is a clear influence from Gerhard Richter's 4900 colours and Bindi acknowledges her interest in the painter. But there is also a clear concern with the properties and processes of photography and so far she has produced a solid body of work in support of this interest.
