Mariah Robertson Biography

Mariah Robertson creates experimental, mid-sized to monumental camera less prints welcoming accidents, irregular chemical reactions whilst plays games with negative collage, solarisation and filters. Manipulating chemicals and materials she creates handmade colour and black-and-white works, in which she pushes photography past documentation into abstraction.

In her words, “I like to take a system and then sort of bend the rules, and change them, and shake the system to see what the breaking points are and what the functional points are.”

Coming to photography via early performance pieces, initially she used it as a tool to document these “social experiments.” This eventually escalated to her rebellious embrace of the medium, producing lush, painterly prints, infused with wit and full of colourful stains, striations, geometric forms, and ghostly, fragmented images.
