About the Teaching Artist

Using processes perfected in the earliest days of photography, Gwen Arkin uses the simplest of cameras (holga, pinhole, haselblad) to record familiar scenes and objects. She exercises her alchemy and artistic will in the darkroom to offer images at once familiar and ephemeral. She composes continuous narratives, linked with gently superimposed visual segues. Fugitive figures imply a spiritual dimension, while their softly focused stillness conjures the legacy of photographic Pictorialism. In silk, her imagery runs to the abstract, while maintaining close bonds with photographic transfer processes. A sensual dimension emerges in diaphanous colors and textures, combined in dream-sequences of form and color. She received her BFA from the University of Illinois, Chicago and MFA from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and now resides on the island of Maui in Hawaii. Her work can be viewed at Zforrest Gallery, Makawao, Maui, Hawaii
