Art Description

Handprinted on handmade 100% recycled cotton rag paper.

This artwork was inspired by Amelia Earhart, the pioneering female aviator and advocate for gender equality and defying cultural norms.

Bust of Amelia The Aviatress In Gold was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of fashion portraiture and illustrations of birds. The digital negative was then contact printed onto hand shaped circular paper that had been hand-brushed with chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to light, the piece was washed to develop a cyan blue colour, pressed dry and then hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.

Dimensions - 300mm diameter (unframed) 385mm diameter (framed) x 30mm frame depth x 18mm frame face

Paper - Handprinted on handmade ivory recycled cotton rag paper: 320gsm / 100% Cotton Rag / Recycled / Acid Free / PH Neutral / Medium Rough

Mount - It is recommended to keep this piece float mounted when framing.

Framing - This artwork is sold framed.

Frames are hand crafted to house the piece. Float mounted in a bespoke, handmade medium sized circular frame. The frame is a deep box frame, museum grade, UV protected, anti reflective glass fronted and with a smooth white finish.

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 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 enable me to be at one with each piece I create.
