Title | AMELIA THE AVIATRESS AT SUNRISE
Type | Original Copper Leaf Cyanotype
Inspiration | Amelia Earhart
Year | 2020
Materials | Cyanotype, handmade paper, chemical and heat-treated copper leaf

This artwork was inspired by pioneering pilot and adventurer extraordinaire Amelia Earhart. Defying gender roles, she built an unorthodox career in a man’s world; she was a compelling force in aviation and women’s rights; diversified her career with lectures, writing, and business ventures. Earhart dared to be different, an inspiring role model for women and one of the most famous flyers of her day.

Technique
Amelia The Aviatress At Sunrise was created by constructing a hand-cut collage using female photographic portraiture and hand drawn illustrations of birds.

After coating the handmade paper with light-sensitive chemistry, it is left to dry in a dark room. The large scale negative is then contact printed onto the paper by exposing to daylight (UV rays). The print is then processed by thoroughly washing in water to remove any unexposed solution. It can then be hung to dry, developing to full density Prussian blue after 24 hours. Once the image is fixed it is hand finished with hand-painted, chemical and heat-treated copper leaf.

Paper

Mount
We use float mounting for all of our framed cyanotypes. The artwork floats above a snow-white mount board, showcasing the paper texture and deckled edging.
Framing - This artwork is sold framed.

Framed in a white deep box frame.
Framed artwork will arrive ready to hang.

Each frame is handmade by our London based design team. All frames come with gallery spec, 3mm thick anti-reflective/ UV glazing as standard.

This is taken from a series of cyanotypes based on females in history and mythology. Ones who particularly inspire me, deserve to be recognised and celebrated as powerful figures in time.

I want to visually tell a story with each piece to celebrate the lives of these amazing women using portraiture, symbolism and surrealism.

I choose to initially create my pieces using a combination of collage made up of original photographs, paintings, illustrations and found imagery. Once completed, I photograph and print large scale negatives ready for cyanotype printing.

I expose all my pieces in natural light for up to a couple of weeks. Printing in all weather conditions, doing everything by eye and in the most organic way possible, this enables me to be at one with each piece I create.
