Cathy Immordino’s photography is intellectual. And emotional. It captures the multidimensional quality of human consciousness by recombining its parts into new wholes -- literally by engineering fresh composite photographs derived from an array of her own original images. She does this in order to tell stories which themselves weave across generations, genres, continents, and mediums. “I do not stop at the making of the photograph,” she says. “I go on to print these unified montages of layers and fragments and then to apply processes, like cyanotype, photogravure, and 3-D reductive printmaking, to augment and express their conceptual intent.” Immordino further enhances her stylized lexicon with the addition of hand-restored, lavishly embellished vintage frames, often with shaped and convex glass, which in turn evokes the same set of references to family, sociology, and the human condition which are being expressed within the kaleidoscopic images. Thus the form and content each express the same message, making her process and story all the more familiar in its appeal and resonance.
