Mariah Robertson produces cameraless abstractions that unspool in trapeze-like ribbons and dance in architectural space. Her works straddle the languages of painting and photography, yet begin in the darkroom, where she masks, tears, chemically douses, and otherwise manipulates metallic photographic paper to startling ends—in her words, the “good ones exceed the plan.” Robertson’s work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among many others.
