'Aidan Gageler's practice thinks through photography's receptibility, both to light and to sentiment. Curiously, his materials bruise with exposure to time, attesting to a kind of fleshy experience akin to our own.'
- Benjamin Clay
The printmaking mentorship was a great opportunity to view my photography and print based practice in a different way. It was great to engage with the practice that birthed photography and play with processes and materials similar to the early photographic experiments of the late 19th Century. It was also invaluable to talk to someone that has been practising and balancing that with life for a while - I found that to be just as valuable as the art-making.
