Jess Repose takes original photos and transfers them onto wooden postcards. (Yes, you can actually mail them with a little extra postage.) The transfer process is done by hand with acrylic gel medium which makes each postcard unique. The 3.5 x 5 inch postcards are made from laser cut birch wood using tools at an AS220 lab, and most of the photos are shot with a film camera. Pretty cool, huh?
Jess told us, "I was looking for a fun and creative way to sell my photography without just framing the photos. I love that each and every transfer I make is different."
(Yes, Jess, well 'different' is one word for it. Another few would be...'deliciously tactile and an insanely creative use of a camera and a piece of wood!')
Jess is coming to the Flea on September 7 and 14 because she's a local of Providence and would like to share her work with friends and neighbors. We recommend you stop by for a share.
