‘‘I have been transforming my everyday inorganic garbage items into autonomous works of art since 1987. Thus I have been exploring an ecologically driven aesthetics respectful of earth’s resources and the cycle of nature and life. Aspiring for an artistic reconciliation between concept, matter and activism my art practice challenges our contemporary understanding of matter and existence. My work may be seen as a unique personal footprint, raising notions of consummation and transience, enigma and exigency, art and life.’’
Combining her deep passion for geology and environmental issues, such as climate change and pollution, Tucker explores the tactility of cameraless photograms created in the landscape under direct sunlight on silver gelatin paper. As the photographic medium utilizes minerals and ores from the Earth, she embraces this cyclic nature of mining for silvers in the paper and changing their chemical composition once submerged into different toning baths. This process of mining for silvers has resonated deeply with Tucker as a conversation between her photography work and field investigations of geological & chemical changes to the environment. Primarily operating through alternative processes and cameraless photography, Tucker’s practice also includes lens based photography and post-photographic digital treatment of images.
