About Angela Chalmers
Angela is a visual artist based in North Yorkshire. Her work deals with the intricacies of the human condition, often with a deeper focus on history, memory and identity. Her current work explores camera-less photography techniques and creates images using a Victorian printing process.
Angela produces photograms by placing 3D objects directly onto hand-coated sensitised paper. She uses objects connected to the feminine and domestic function. These are often items of antiquity, in particular fragments of lace and articles worn for rites of passage, such as a wedding or christening gown. These items evoke memories, and become treasured keepsakes.
Paintings of human forms evolve through a method of pouring and dripping a limited palette of water-based media onto selected handmade and plastic-coated papers.
