Barbara Vogel received her BFA and MFA from the Ohio State University. She creates images based in alternative photographic processes. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Springfield Art Museum in Springfield, Ohio, the Southern Ohio Museum in Portsmouth, Ohio, and the Ross Art Museum in Delaware, Ohio. Locally, her work can be seen in the permanent collections of the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital, the Hilton Columbus Downtown, and the Columbus Convention Center.
"The imagery presented in this exhibition is 'clickless' photography created with a hand-held wand scanner, an instrument designed to be used on books and flat materials. The scans take over five seconds, which develops an intimacy between the subject and the photographer, as well as a different kind of image. The ambient light and the light of the scanner create valleys of shadows and unusual luminosity. The soft focus gives both people and plants a sense of the historical or antique, while veils of light bathe each subject with serenity that elevates the imagery above the commonplace, decorative, or commercial. I cover these images with fused encaustic medium to add to their other-worldly, unattainable preserved quality." - Barb Vogel
