About Jacek Gonsalves

 
 
  • Biography
    I was born in Kuwait and moved to Perth, Western Australia in my early teenage years.
    My artwork are all handmade on watercolour paper, using a alternative photographic techinique called cyanotype. 
    This simple process produces a continuous tone image of Prussian blue using a sensitising solution.
    I am a self taught artist and always loved making thngs with my hands. 
    Photography always had an allure to me but it was always 2 dimensional, I needed something I can hold and to feel such as pottery and jewllery.
    For many years I focused on things that were not photography driven, but in 2018 my wife had asked me to be in group exhibition on botanical plants.
    For the exhibition I decided to jump into the world of cyanotype because of the alluring blue colour. 
    There are so many variable factors that effect how a cyanotype print turns out, that it can be a great challenge to reproduce the same result time after time. Variables such as the humidity, temperature, the way to brush the emulsion onto the paper, to how you wash the print, even your mood on the day can affect the print! There are a multitude of intricacies one must remember and document for repeatable results. 
    The exhibition in 2018 was a success for me and sparked my love of photography once again. 
    I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all my ceramic and jewllery equipment, perhaps one day I'll revisit them? :)

    Living in Western Australia, there are an abudance of its own species of plants including varieties from across the world, which I'm spolit for choice.

    I hope you enjoy my work, because I love creating every single piece.
