Both artists with exhibitions opening at Greg Kucera Gallery this month use photography as a medium, but that’s where the similarities end. Joe Rudko’s works employ the colors and textures of cut and torn photographs to generate rhythmic, repetitive collages that are both hard-edged and organic, effusive yet minimal. Daniel Carrillo works with daguerreotypes—one of the earliest forms of photography, made using mercury vapor on a silver-coated plate. For this show, he visited the studios of a number of other Seattle artists, turning their tools of the trade into densely detailed material documents with his anachronistic photographic process.
