Over the past thirty years, Fuss has refined a highly personal approach to photography, rarely using a camera while relying on the most elemental properties of the medium: light, an object, and light-sensitive material. The largest works in the exhibition, measuring 8 x 4 feet, appear to be abstract tangles of colorful pigments, but which derive instead from animal intestines placed directly upon photo-sensitive paper and exposed to light. The lush hues are the result of light passing through the intestines as well as the chemical reaction of the organs in physical contact with the paper. Some of the images assume the form of columns, others dense "allover" skeins of lines. All are clearly concerned with mysteries of the organic.
