Fresh Mould Art 1984-2000
UPDATE TO ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE - AUGUST 2020 - Brenda Turnnidge
Sorting through my archives, I came across a fresh new crop of mould art essentially from China and Hong Kong. Here’s an eclectic selection containing Eid Al Fitr greetings, fiery dragons, dragon boats and ... bananas!
MOULD ART : ORIGINAL PROJECT PRESS RELEASE
Since the early 1990’s, photographer Brenda Turnnidge has gained something of a reputation for her highly original hand-tinted photographs.
Using traditional techniques, she hijacked her images adding an orange sky here and a blue field there infusing new life into her B & W prints. The result was quirky and contemporary. Meanwhile, deep in her 1980s Asian archives, chemicals beyond her control joined forces with nature and started “auto-tinting”. To Brenda’s surprise, her slides had accumulated layers of green and purple mould over the years.Tinting without trying. The result is often abstract and frequently an improvement on the original stock shot. Part of photography’s magical moments. Mould art had invented itself.

Des photos qui ressemblent à des tableaux , c'est très impressionnant.
Love the way you have turned a negative into a positive. Great colours.
Beautiful work Brenda... You are a photopainter
Love these! So cool. The mold is doing a great tinting job!
