“I began working on the images one day out of anguish and grief and I ended up rescued by a depth of meaning I never really meant to touch. The resulting 40 images are 22 x 28 inch hand-colored photogravures combining the graffiti of New Orleans with religious imagery from San Miguel in Mexico – the dueling iconographies of the two places I call home.
I have no final judgement to make on the subjects. Each expression is presented with its consolations and its cruelties. They are what they are and I hope the viewer finds something in them that speaks to what they themselves may have experienced, needed, or felt.”
– Josephine Sacabo
Josephine will discuss her photogravure process at Tulane University’s 13th Annual Latin American Library Open House, Friday, September 29 at 2pm.

NOMA premiers the newest body of work by Josephine Sacabo (American, b. 1944). In Salutations, Sacabo combines collaged and distorted photographic images with a wet collodion on metal process that dates back to the 19th century to create a world that is barely recognizable as such, hovering like a memory or a dream in the space between the concrete and the ineffable.
