Art Description

Collage: Paper, Cyanotype, Monotype on Wood.

This mini 8 x 8 inch (20 x 20 cm) collage on wood panel was made by cutting up and reassembling hand-printed botanical cyanotypes. There is a meditative calm to a repeating pattern. Nature has been a beautiful escape for many of us during this long pandemic. Through it all, the color of the sky and the color of the clouds remains the same: blue and white.

I am a longtime fan of Japanese Shibori, all types of west African indigo dying techniques and Indian block-printed fabrics. I did not use a printing press to make my collage prints but rather sunlight and 19th century photographic chemicals, but I try to achieve some of the same effects.

There is a thin 1/8 inch gold painted border on the front side and the gold painted panel shows through in the spaces between the paper mosaic squares.

The gold paint continues around the 3/4 inch deep wooden sides of the panel making it unnecessary to frame. The surface of the paper is coated with a clear matte varnish to protect it.
